C-Neutral provides environmentally-conscious businesses with an opportunity to offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy usage from fossil fuels by purchasing carbon offset credits. The C-Neutral product from Direct Energy Business allows businesses to bundle carbon offsets with their natural gas supply purchases, to offset up to 100% of the emissions associated with the combustion of natural gas at the point of use. As a result, your organization can:
- Support sustainable solutions and projects throughout the world
- Position itself as a leader in environmental stewardship
- Achieve a competitive advantage by effectively tackling "green" operational and supply chain mandates
- Generate goodwill and heighten brand awareness with your customers
Because Direct Energy Business carbon offsets are certified by Green-e Climate, you can be sure your purchase causes a legitimate reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Green-e® Climate is an independent certification program for greenhouse gas emissions reductions (carbon offsets) sold in the voluntary market. The Green-e Climate logo identifies carbon offsets that meet the program's high environmental and consumer protection standards.

What is a Carbon Offset?
A carbon offset is an intangible commodity representing a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, that is sold in units of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2e). In the voluntary market, it is purchased in order to negate or diminish the impact of the recipient’s own GHG emissions. Reductions occur at projects located away from the source of the emissions being offset.
A carbon offset is a real environmental commodity, not a donation or an investment in a future project.
