Hi @Rich1983 and welcome to the community.
Our electricity has REGO certification (Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin) which means there will always be a guarantee that our electricity comes from sources of wind, sun and water.

In terms of offset gas, Pure Planet buys Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) on all our members’ behalf. CERs are certified by the UN Clean Development Mechanism whose main goal is to reduce overall carbon emission. They have some useful info about their Clean Development Mechanism in the page below. Take a look:

Any other questions Rich? I hope this info helps!
