Carbon Neutral Pty Ltd
Established in 2001, Carbon Neutral is a leader in climate change solutions.
Our offering includes providing carbon solutions and carbon management services to organisations across the globe, from carbon advisory to offsetting GHG emissions.
We are the developer and manager of biodiverse reforestation carbon offset projects, including the first Gold Standard certified Australian carbon project.
“Climate action requires businesses make urgent changes to emissions reduction and protect biodiversity.”
Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since December 2020.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
We are all in the race to net zero emissions by 2050 and it is vital to take action.
Leading by example, we have been measuring (and reducing) and offsetting our footprint since 2013.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
From a business perspective it is about leading by example and creating a clear pathway for others to follow.
Carbon neutral certification further solidifies our commitment to climate change and provides a point of difference for internal and external stakeholders.
Having gone through Climate Active certification we are fully equipped to advise our clients on this process.
What offset projects do you support?
The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor project in Australia and a wind farm project in China.
Why did you choose these projects?
We have invested in a nature-based climate solution here in Australia; the Yarra Yarra Corridor supports the nation’s economy, positively impacts on rural livelihoods, and restores delicate ecosystems in a global biodiversity hotspot.
How can the community support you?
By sharing in our vision of a sustainable future the community can help us to grow the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
Carbon reduction and energy efficiency plans is part of our client offering and we are acutely aware of practices available for businesses to reduce emissions.
Carbon Neutral continually reviews and implements carbon reduction methods of its own business activities. We have minimised our footprint to the point where it is challenging to implement further (cost effective) solutions.
What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
Climate reduction action starts with ownership at Board level, understanding the drivers for change and the business risk appetite.
To implement solutions and build a sense of pride, engaging staff to play a small or large role helps a business meet those targets.
We are able to share our experience and how to achieve carbon neutrality with others. This knowledge of the process and its intricacies is invaluable to those hoping to be successful.
