Frequently Asked Questions
Green Business Gas Plans are carbon-neutral gas plans offered to non-domestic consumers. They offset the carbon emissions associated with your business’ gas consumption by investing in credible international schemes like Gold Standard (GS) or Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) projects. These projects focus on reforestation, renewable energy, and waste treatment, benefiting both the environment and disadvantaged communities.
When you choose a Green Business Gas Plan, a set volume of carbon offset certificates is reserved upfront based on internationally accredited VCS or Gold Standard projects. These projects work to reduce or remove carbon emissions. As you consume gas as usual, Yü Energy purchases carbon offsets and retires them on your behalf, equivalent to the amount of carbon emitted from your gas consumption. Once the carbon offset certificates are retired, you receive a climate protection certificate confirming that the carbon emissions have been offset.
Green Business Gas Plans support a variety of projects across the globe. Some examples include the Amazon project in Brazil, which saves carbon emissions by preventing deforestation; the Samsun project in Turkey, which captures harmful gases from a landfill site to produce sustainable electricity; the Sumatra project in Indonesia, which generates hydroelectricity for over 700,000 people; and the Manali project in India, which harnesses hydro power from glacial snow melt and monsoon rains.
