Confirm your environmental credentials with certificates


Getting on supply with renewable power from Drax means you can report your Scope 2 emissions (see graphic below) as zero. To go further, our fleet electrification and asset optimisation services can cut your Scope 1 emissions too – and we can also discuss reducing your Scope 3 emissions.

The next step towards net zero is to buy Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) – sometimes known as Energy Attribution Certificates (EACs). These guarantee the source of renewable power being generated around the world – and deliver other advantages as well.

To discuss how we can help you take another sustainability step by purchasing RECs, get in touch.

RECs can deliver Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) benefits and address your reporting of emissions. They also help to encourage renewable energy generation.

Which sustainability standards will help you on the road to net zero? - Hero Image

Support renewables

RECs encourage organisations to expand (or start) generating and stimulate the renewable power industry.

Worldwide coverage of RECs


Every REC represents the generation of one megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable electricity somewhere in the world. We deliver RECs appropriate to the countries or regions where you operate.
