Brown & Co’s Energy Sustainability Requirement

Brown & Co’s aim was to minimise their energy costs. However, they also wanted to switch to zero carbon energy to help tackle climate change.

Beond’s Zero Carbon Project Solution

Beond ran a Zero Carbon Market online auction for Brown & Co’s zero carbon energy requirement. 15 energy suppliers participated in the online auctions, offering a mix of zero carbon energy offers including renewable electricity using REGO offsets, nuclear energy and fossil fuel sourced energy with carbon credit offsets.

After reviewing the range of zero carbon energy offers and their price differences, Brown & Co selected EDF Energy blue (nuclear) for their electricity supply and Crown Gas and Power for their gas.

Beond used their Zero Carbon Project to neutralise the carbon emmsions from their energy supply by purchasing and surrendering UN certified carbon permits, at no additional cost to Brown & Co.

By doing so, Brown & Co offset all 80 tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted over the duration of the energy supply contracts. They also earned 13,137 Zero Carbon Coin token rewards for helping tackle climate change.

The auction delivered a 25% reduction on Brown & Co’s previous gas costs, while switching to zero carbon energy. This reduction was mainly due to the competitive intensity of the auction process.
