Heat Carbon Neutral
Offset your carbon footprint from your home heating oil.
Support the Environment
International accredited schemes are used to offset 100% of the carbon associated to fuel usage.
Support local environmental, conservation and restoration projects.
About The scheme
As a conscientious fuel supplier, we understand the challenges that face home heating oil customers who want to achieve a lower carbon future. The principle of the scheme allows for customers to neutralise the impact of their emissions by paying an additional 3ppl when purchasing domestic fuel to offset the carbon emissions created by their fuel burn.
We are the first fuel retailer in Guernsey to provide a choice for home heating oil customers to offset their carbon emissions from their own heating usage.
Working in conjunction with ESI Monitor Ltd, we will offset emissions when purchasing fuel,
by supporting environmental conservation and restoration projects in Guernsey, as well as contributing to
accredited international carbon offset projects.
La Société Guernesiaise was founded to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of Guernsey, the conservation of the natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments.
The Guernsey Conservation Volunteers have been helping to conserve Guernsey’s natural environment since 1996. They work on many beautiful sites and nature reserves around the island to maintain and enhance the biodiversity of the area.
Trees for Life
Guernsey Trees for Life is a charitable Society founded
in 1935 to promote the
importance of trees and their conservation in recognition of
the vital contribution trees, woodland and forest make to
Your contribution goes to a number of international offsetting schemes. The projects supported may change from time to time depending on demand. Here are some examples of how your contribution is helping internationally:
Kariba Forest Protection, Zimbabwe
This project protects almost 785,000 hectares of forest, prevents over 3.5 million tonnes of C02 being released annually, and helps to encourage and sustain biodiversity in Zimbabwe.
Access to Safe Water, Cambodia
This project provides water purifiers to rural communities in Cambodia, meaning these people no longer have to burn wood to boil water. This reduces C02 emissions and releases pressure on Cambodia’s forests.
Efficient Cookstoves, Rwanda
This project provides innovative cookstoves to communities in Rwanda, which significantly reduces fuel consumption and C02 pollution.
Carbon neutral aspect relates to the emissions from the fuel burn. It does not refer to embedded C02 created from the exploration and refining process of the fuel or the manufacture of boilers, storage tanks or any components.
