Our business operations are certified carbon neutral!

We're excited to announce that Lumo Energy’s business operations are now certified as carbon-neutral by Climate Active, a certification awarded to businesses in recognition of their operations achieving carbon neutrality! To learn more about Climate Active certification visit their website.

Carbon Neutral Certificate

This certification means that both employees and customers can be extremely proud to say that Lumo Energy's business operations have been certified carbon neutral by Climate Active.

Through some clever ways of working and changing up the way we think about how our business can impact the environment, we can now say that we have reached a state of carbon neutrality across our business operations!

Lumo Energy was able to reduce emissions by investing in new technologies and also by making some changes to the way we work. For example:

  • We purchase 100% GreenPower electricity to power our offices and we’ve upgraded our appliances and lighting to make them more energy efficient
  • We are replacing our fleet of vehicles with electric and hydrogen cars
  • We have electric bikes available for staff to use for shorter trips
  • We promote video conferencing to minimise travel
  • We’ve adopted a Paperlite policy and avoid using paper where possible
  • We’ve automated a lot of the lighting and temperatures of our buildings to ensure minimal energy consumption

Some carbon emissions can’t be avoided, yet. For those, we’ve purchased Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs). In calculating our carbon emissions, we even included staff travel to and from work as well as staff working from home.

Lumo Energy is proud to have the Climate Active organisation trade mark because we want to support climate action. We believe it's important for Australian organisations like us to take responsibility for their impact on the environment, and we think it's important for Australians everywhere to know about it too!

Lumo Energy is Climate Active carbon neutral certified for our business operations. This does not extend to your energy supply.
