First, we check how much electricity you’ve used at home. With this data, we can calculate the carbon emissions generated from your usage using official estimates from the Australian Government Department of the Environment.


We can then purchase the equivalent number of carbon credits or offsets from our suppliers, representing the removal of that amount of carbon from the atmosphere. Visit the Department of Environment and Energy to learn more about carbon calculations for your state.
