Our Electrification Programme uses Meridian’s Certified Renewable Energy product (Certified). Certified completely changes the carbon reporting and offsetting game for New Zealand businesses. It’s a product that will enable you to report your Scope 2 electricity emissions as zero.*
Essentially, all the energy you consume from the national grid comes from both renewable and non-renewable sources. Our Certified product allows business customers to match the amount of electricity they use on an annual basis, with an equivalent amount of electricity put into the grid from one of Meridian’s hydro stations or wind farms – which have been certified as producing 100% renewable energy.
So, with Certified, if you’re currently paying to offset your Scope 2 electricity emissions, you can stop that. And if you’re not, Certified means you won’t need to start.
What does this mean?
It means that by signing up to electrify your process heating systems, you’re also signing up to purchase all of your future electricity through our Certified programme.
Essentially, it’s a twofer. You get to double down on your sustainability goals, and it shows your customers, partners, stakeholders and communities that you care about the future of our planet.
*Using the market-based reporting methodology as per the GHG Protocol’s Scope 2 Standards.
