Organisation. 

How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

CareSuper's first year of carbon neutrality was 2017-18; the organisation joined the Climate Active Network in 2020.

Why are you carbon neutral?

Becoming carbon neutral aligns with our Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Policy and contributes to the building of a low carbon economy.

What are the benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

Carbon neutral certification helps reduce our operational footprint, supports our engagement with our members as well as with our staff.

What offset projects do you support?

A conservation project in Australia and wind power projects in Taiwan and India.

Why did you choose these projects?

In addition to providing carbon offset, these projects support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and provide co-benefits such as improving biodiversity in Australia, creating jobs and improving access to education for girls in developing countries.

How can the community support you?

By becoming more carbon conscious such as accessing our information online rather than requesting hard copies via mail.  

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

We switched to green energy for our power needs. We implemented technology initiatives to enable staff to use online communications and reporting. We encourage staff to use public transport.

What has been the impact of your action?

Over several years, we have taken a number of initiatives to reduce emissions but seeking carbon neutral certification means that we have now formalised our measurement.  

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

By becoming carbon neutral, it helps raise awareness of the importance of reducing carbon emissions among staff, suppliers and customers, as well as with the broader community.
