Business benefits of buying renewable electricity

With renewable electricity now attracting a premium, why should businesses pay more for it? Join our webinar to learn about how to report lower carbon emissions and demonstrate your environmental commitments by opting for a renewable supply. Our sustainability experts will explain GreenHouse Gas Protocol Scope 2 carbon reporting which enables you to report the emissions of your specific tariff – making it crucial to know where your renewable electricity comes from. We will also talk about measures being introduced to improve transparency around renewables and associated carbon emissions, to make it easier for businesses to buy renewable electricity and know they are getting the full benefits from their choices.
