Organisation

How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

Since December 2014.

Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?

Allens is committed to reducing the climate change impacts of its operations. After working for many years to reduce the firm's carbon emissions, we decided that the next logical step was to take responsibility for our residual emissions by becoming carbon neutral.

What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

Maintaining carbon neutral certification through Climate Active demonstrates the firm's genuine commitment to climate action in line with credible standards. It is a source of pride for our people and provides a platform for engagement, including through educational sessions relating to climate action. As an ancillary benefit, our carbon neutral certification enables us to demonstrate compliance with the responsible sourcing expectations of our clients.

What offset projects do you support?

We support various Australian and international carbon offset projects. In Australia, we have prioritised investment in Indigenous fire abatement projects. These projects not only have climate benefits, they also deliver social and environmental outcomes for local communities by reinvigorating cultural traditions, providing employment opportunities and protecting biodiversity.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

Actions to reduce the firm's emissions have included improving operational efficiency, investing in technological innovation, sourcing GreenPower accredited energy and educating and engaging our people to reduce work-related emissions.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

For businesses considering carbon neutral certification, our advice is to seek and act on opportunities to network, share knowledge and collaborate with like-minded organisations.
