The provider you go with is a really important question, but actually quite a complicated one because there's a lot of confusion about suppliers/tariffs that are genuinely green, and those that are simply marketed as green (otherwise known as 'greenwashing'). Below is some context on this distinction and then a couple of recommendations of suppliers to look at. 

1. Firstly, it's not strictly possible to get your energy supply from the National Grid and for that supply to be 100% renewable. The only way to ensure that only 100% renewable energy is supplied to your business is to connect directly from a generator (e.g. install your own solar panels).

Learning how to adventure sustainably will help you to reduce and offset your carbon footprint and explore without making a negative impact on the natural world.

We can all do something about climate change, which is why we founded Carbon Jacked – we’re all about helping you adventure sustainably. 

Individuals need to take action, but demanding that they stop everything and live like a monk on a low-fun diet won’t work because it will alienate more people than it converts.

At Carbon Jacked, we think people must understand their environmental impact and take action to reduce it so that they can continue adventuring, rather than stop.

Life works in mysterious ways, doesn’t it? As a maths fanatic and an actuarial science student, I never imagined myself working in the environmental/climate change field. But now that I have, I’m starting to see how every field should have climate change policies at its core. Carbon Jacked has revolutionised my perspective on how climate change should be approached and the last couple of weeks working with the Jacks were nothing short of amazing. I have learnt a tonne and had so much fun doing it.

Jack Curtis and Jacques Sheehan are the Co-Founders of environmental start-up Carbon Jacked introduce and make the argument for carbon offsetting.

To read about climate change at the moment is to be bombarded by a mixture of virtue signalling and semi-incomprehensible terms that sound like the name of your middle-aged science teacher’s woeful rock band: ‘carbon neutral’, ‘carbon negative’ and ‘climate positive’. 

At the centre of this is a debate about carbon offsetting and its effectiveness. On one side it’s the devil, a guilt-absolving way to do nothing and keep living your life at the expense of the planet. On the other, it’s a magical solution to save the planet without lifting a finger. So which side is right?

Well, neither.

The truth is...
