The Energy Savers Club and Climate Aware programmes are a series of measures and initiatives that aim to help consumers save money, reduce energy consumption and offset their carbon emissions.

As part of the Energy Savers Club, a tailor-made online energy efficiency plan will be designed for customers to help them improve the energy rating of their homes. They will be eligible for exclusive discounts on energy-efficiency products and receive renewably generated electricity at no extra cost. The offer will last for two years.

Customers who sign up to Climate Aware pay a contribution of about &£30, which will then be given to environmentally friendly projects in developing countries to offset the carbon emissions.

British Gas says it is targeting customers interested in green issues using a mix of e-mails and advertising in the national and lifestyle press, and also via its website,
