Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since February 2021.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
Carbon neutrality is an important component of our strategy to minimise the direct negative impact of our own business activities.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
We believe that carbon neutral certification can positively impact our business by improving our company image, building our brand and motivating both the team and shareholders.
Social and environmental responsible efforts are important to our clients, team and stakeholders.
What offset projects do you support?
A savanna burning project in the Tiwi Islands, a conservation project in South Australia and a wind farm project in Taiwan.
Why did you choose these projects?
Essence has selected projects that combine carbon offsets with:
- Support of indigenous communities in protecting regionally and culturally important, biodiversity-rich lands and sustainable livelihood opportunities.
- Support of communities in the development of localised renewable energy solutions, ecosystem protection and biodiversity enhancement.
How can the community support you?
Working with Essence will provide access for our clients and stakeholders to a passionate environmental advocate in the delivery of iconic landmark developments.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
We are implementing a Green Travel Action plan to help encourage our team members in their travel-to-work choices.
What has been the impact of your action?
This is the first year of measuring our business environmental impact. This assessment and certification will allow Essence to benchmark and target future performance.
