Drive Carbon Neutral
Offset the impact of the emissions created from your fuel usage every time you fill up.
Heat Carbon Neutral
Offset your carbon footprint from your home heating oil.
Support the Environment
International accredited schemes are used to offset 100% of the carbon associated to fuel usage.
Support local environmental, conservation and restoration projects.
About The scheme
As a conscientious fuel supplier, we understand the challenges that face road users and home heating oil customers who want to achieve a lower carbon future. The principle of the scheme allows for customers to neutralise the impact of their emissions by paying an additional 3ppl at an ATF ‘Carbon Neutral Pump’ or opt in when purchasing domestic fuel to offset the carbon emissions created by their fuel burn.
We are the first fuel retailer in Jersey to provide a choice for motorists and home heating oil customers to offset their carbon emissions from their own vehicle and heating usage.
Working in conjunction with ESI Monitor Ltd, we will offset emissions when purchasing fuel,
by supporting environmental conservation and restoration projects in Jersey, as well as contributing to
accredited international carbon offset projects.
Drive Carbon Neutral
You can choose to use the ‘green’ Drive Carbon Neutral Pumps at our ATF Forecourts which charges an extra 3ppl to offset the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated by that litre of fuel.
The extra 3ppl you pay will go to local and international carbon offset schemes.
We will continue sell fuel at our regular low prices if you choose not to use the Drive Carbon Neutral Pump.
In addition, we continue to be the only Channel Island fuel supplier that complies with UK legislation that requires petrol and diesel to have a bio-fuel content of at least 5% and 7% respectively, which supports policy on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from road transport.
A new environment fund, through the Jersey Community Foundation has been made possible with the backing of ATF Fuels and ESI Monitor Ltd. The Jersey Community Foundation offers grants to local groups for local environmental conservation and restoration projects. The Jersey Community Foundation will receive funding from ATF’s Drive Carbon Neutral, Carbon Offset+ Scheme which will go towards provisioning the local grants.
Funding will support projects, services or initiatives to be undertaken within Jersey, which assist Jersey’s decarbonization plans, enhance and restore local biodiversity, address climate change, support the implementation of the Island’s Energy Plan and generally further environmental protection and enhancement locally. These examples are illustrative, not exhaustive but all projects must fit one or more charitable purposes as per the Charities (Jersey) Law 2014.

Your contribution goes to a number of international offsetting schemes. The projects supported may change from time to time depending on demand. Here are some examples of how your contribution is helping internationally:
Kariba Forest Protection, Zimbabwe
This project protects almost 785,000 hectares of forest, prevents over 3.5 million tonnes of C02 being released annually, and helps to encourage and sustain biodiversity in Zimbabwe.
Access to Safe Water, Cambodia
This project provides water purifiers to rural communities in Cambodia, meaning these people no longer have to burn wood to boil water. This reduces C02 emissions and releases pressure on Cambodia’s forests.
Efficient Cookstoves, Rwanda
This project provides innovative cookstoves to communities in Rwanda, which significantly reduces fuel consumption and C02 pollution.
Carbon neutral aspect relates to the emissions from the fuel burn. It does not refer to embedded C02 created from the exploration and refining process of the fuel or the manufacture of the vehicle, boiler, storage tank or it components.
