Terms & Conditions
As part of the Greener Life program, GNG will calculate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with your natural gas usage and retire carbon offsets to reduce 100% of those emissions. The greenhouse gas emissions being offset by this service are those associated with the combustion of natural gas at the point of consumption only, and do not include lifecycle emissions that occur during extraction, production, or delivery.
Each Carbon Offset represents the reduction of one ton of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions. The offsets GNG purchases for the Greener Life program come from a mix of projects that have been validated and registered under the high-quality standards of the Climate Action Reserve and the American Carbon Registry. Our project mix is comprised of 80% Landfill Gas Capture and 20% Improved Forest Management.
The Carbon Offset Content Label represents the mix of project types, locations, and verification programs that will be used to supply your offsets. The actual percentages or metric tons of GHG emissions reductions by type may vary by a small percentage. In the case of a significant variance, the Seller of the Certified Offsets is obligated to provide you with more accurate historical disclosure.
Participation in Greener Life is limited to customers who are enrolled on any of GNG’s residential or commercial price plans published on GNG’s website.
Your monthly Greener Life Signature Service charge will appear on your bill as a separate line item under the Current Gas Service Charges section of your bill and is subject to applicable state and local taxes.
GNG’s Greener Life program is Green-e® Climate certified and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards for greenhouse gas emissions reductions (carbon offsets) set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions.
These carbon offsets are certified by Green-e ® Climate, which requires companies to provide their customers with this notice of Price, Terms, and Conditions of service.
