Ørsted has added two ‘green gas’ products to its energy supply offer, the energy giant announced yesterday.
The firm is offering biogas, captured from anerobic digestion, and natural gas plus carbon offsetting, to its UK business customers.
Ørsted said the biogas comes with a guaranteed certificate of origin, while the carbon neutral gas offer will offset customer use via investment in sustainable development projects related to issues such as clean energy, water treatment and forest management.
Ashley Phillips, managing director at Ørsted Sales UK, said customers were increasingly opting to buy from firms with green credentials. “Consumer demand is at an all-time high, with 73 per cent of UK consumers stating a preference for products and retailers that use renewable energy – as such, it can help to provide competitive advantage when it comes to sustainability credentials,” he said.
