We make it easy for you to help the environment

The majority of the energy we use when we perform daily work, social and home activities comes from sources that cause pollution. 

Green Star Energy can help you reduce your carbon footprint and achieve a sustainable lifestyle. From our processes and standards to the services offered, we look to create cleaner, more sustainable communities across the UK.

Purchasing renewable energy for your home is one positive way to reduce your household’s carbon emissions and help tackle climate change. Find out more about our fuel mix:

Our Carbon
Reduction Projects



Not only will we supply your home with 100% renewable electricity, we have partnered with Carbon Footprint to help to support two worthwhile carbon reduction projects:

Reducing deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest, Brazil

Each of our Green plan customers supports the reduction of deforestation in the largest remaining rainforest on our plant. 

The Amazon is home to 10%2 of species we know about – and probably a lot that we don’t know yet, including endangered species that rely on it for their survival. 

As a global population, we also depend on the Amazon for food, water, wood and medicines, and to help stabilise the climate.

The Brazil REDD projects we support are monitored and verified by the international Verified Carbon Standard and provide essential help to protect this critical tropical rainforest.

Planting trees for the benefit of our local communities

Trees are a natural air purifier; they absorb and store carbon whilst releasing oxygen back into the air. 

Delivered via Carbon Footprint, we plant two British native broadleaf trees per customer to help preserve the environment for our customers and their neighbours.

Tree planting helps to:

  • Provide wildlife habitats & support biodiversity
  • Plant native British trees
  • Enhance the natural UK landscape
  • Offset CO2 emissions
