Do you want to make a positive climate impact? Go carbon neutral!
We are proud to say Nectr offers 100% carbon neutral certified plans
Our Nectr 100% Clean plans are 100% carbon neutral – meaning we have reduced our carbon emission as much as possible and then invested in projects that reduce or remove emissions from the atmosphere. Overall, our emissions equal zero or are neutral.
What does it mean to be certified?
We have now achieved Climate Active certification for our standard plans and these plans are now 100% carbon neutral (no longer only 100% carbon offset) as standard. A carbon neutral certification by the Australian Commonwealth Government is awarded to businesses and organisations that have credibly reached a state of achieving net zero emissions, otherwise known as carbon neutrality. This means that the activities associated with running a business or producing a particular product (as in our case) have no net negative impact on the climate.
Did you know, one of the most affordable ways to reduce your carbon emissions is to purchase carbon neutral certified products. We are providing consumers with an easy way to take climate action, by switching to one of Nectr’s 100% carbon neutral plans, you will reduce your impact on the environment.
Carbon Neutral – What does it mean?
A lot of us don’t actually understand what it means to be 100% carbon neutral, but Don’t worry we are here to help! Some companies are carbon neutral and others like Nectr offer products that are 100% carbon neutral. It means the greenhouse gas emissions associated with an activity like generating power are reduced or offset to a total of zero. For a product to be considered 100% carbon neutral, action must be taken to reduce and offset the emissions associated with supplying it to you!

Nectr projects already making a difference – what are we doing?
Nectr is serious about renewable energy and our support of carbon neutral project and we are investing towards a better tomorrow with the following projects:
India: Hydropower Project in Himachal Pradesh
This project is a run-of-the-river hydro-electric power plant with an installed capacity of 300 MW.
- The Project has improved the infrastructural facilities like water availability, road, upgrading of existing schools and medical facilities.
- The Project activity brings considerable investment in the region and helps in overall development of the region
Jangi wind farm in Gujurat, India
This project is a 91.8 MW wind farm that produces approximately 260 GWh of energy per year, and will contribute to GHG emissions reductions of an estimated 254,527 per year. This emissions reduction is achieved by displacing electricity generation from fossil fuel powered plants connected to the local grid.
- Proposed project will improve local power supply, offer employment opportunities and infrastructure upgrades.
Cerro de Hula Wind Project, Honduras:
Located in the Municipalities of Santa Ana and San Buenaventura, Department of Francisco Morazán, 24 km South of Tegucigalpa in Honduras.
- This project diversifies the sources of electricity generation, important for meeting growing energy demands and the transition away from fossil fuel electricity generation.
- Makes greater use of wind renewable energy generation resources for sustainable energy production and demonstrates replicable clean energy technology.
- leads to alleviation of poverty, increases employment, enhances the local investment environment, and therefore improves the local economy.
Enercon Wind Farms in Karnataka, India:
Development, design, engineering, procurement, finance, construction, operation and maintenance of Enercon Wind Farm (Karnataka) Ltd 21 MW and other wind power projects of 12 MW capacity.
- Project meets several sustainable development of the Government of India and Government of Karnataka
- Looks to achieve CO2 abatement and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, reducing the average emission intensity (SOx, NOx, PM, etc.) and average effluent intensity and average solid waste intensity of power generation in the system.
- Conserving natural resources including land, forests, minerals, water and ecosystems; and developing the local economy and create jobs and employment, particularly in rural areas.
Dereli Hydroelectric Power Plant, Turkey:
Plan is to construct Dereli Regulator and Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP) on the Aksu River, within the jurisdiction of Giresun Province.
- Electricity is to be produced without causing airborne pollutants or Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.
- Proposed project activity increases employment opportunities in the area where the project will be located, see a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions through the development of renewable technology and enhances the local investment environment, and therefore improves the local economy.
