Proudly Certified – Our Carbon Trust Accreditation

At SmartestEnergy Business, sustainability isn't just a goal; it's a commitment to a better future. We are thrilled to announce a significant achievement that underscores our dedication to environmental responsibility – officially receiving our Carbon Trust Accreditation. Offering unrivalled transparency of our renewable products and a testament to the importance of sustainability and responsible business practices, find out more about who the Carbon Trust is and how this partnership can benefit your business.
Who is the Carbon Trust?

Having over 20 years of experience as climate pioneers, the Carbon Trust is on a mission to help businesses reach a decarbonised future on their journey to net zero emissions; making them the ideal partner to work with when reporting our renewable electricity.

The Carbon Trust label verifies our ‘SmartFix Renewable’ electricity products

*100% of the electricity supplied is renewable, backed by certificates of renewable energy guarantees of origin. Emission factor compliant with the GHG Protocol Scope 2 guidance and to be used for the ‘market-based’ method.

What is Carbon Trust Accreditation?

Carbon Trust Accreditation is a mark of excellence, supporting organisations that are actively working to measure, manage, and reduce their carbon emissions. It is a globally recognised certification confirming that our green electricity products are 100% renewable; meaning you can trust that all of our renewable electricity has been generated entirely by clean energy sources (such as hydro, solar, or wind).

How does this benefit your business?

The Carbon Trust has ongoing monitoring guarantees that all of our energy is certified to be from clean sources, throughout the entirety of your renewable contract with us. When choosing our renewable products, you’ll also receive a renewable commitment certificate issued alongside your tree planting commitment certificate and net zero badge. These items can be used in your own business advertisements and marketing, showcasing your dedication to a decarbonised future.

Additionally, this means that your business can rest assured knowing that you can report zero carbon emissions emitted for purchased electricity in accordance with the GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance. Or in simple terms, it’s a big step on your journey to net zero.

How does this effect our renewable product range?

Through partnering with the Carbon Trust, we’re able to offer unrivalled transparency of our renewable product proposition; meaning you can trust us when we say that all of our energy is cleanly sourced for these contracts.

It means your business doesn’t have to just ‘take our word for it,’ but rather can see that we have been backed by a reliable, independent source. This enables us to support UK small businesses in their journey to net zero and empower a greener generation.
