Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since August 2021.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
GreenCollar values integrity. We work alongside the country’s leading corporates, land managers, research and environmental organisations to accelerate the transition to a net-zero world and drive positive impact at scale. A Climate Active certification aligns with our core business, leads to a more efficient and low carbon future, and demonstrates that we are walking the walk while operating with integrity.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
The anticipated benefits of carbon neutral certification include increased staff awareness and engagement, reducing unnecessary travel, efficient energy use, and responsible sources for office supplies.
What offset project do you support?
A carbon farming project in Western Australia.
Why did you choose this project?
Carbon farming projects in Western Australia have direct benefits on the environment at a global level by combating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. At a local level, Western Australian carbon farming projects will help meet Australia’s emissions reduction targets and mitigate the effects of climate change that put the State’s natural capital at risk. Carbon farming projects also have a direct environmental impact at the project site by promoting connected, diverse, and resilient ecosystems.
How can customers support you?
Please get in touch with us to see how one of our projects could work for you, or for opportunities to purchase credits.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
GreenCollar has actively encouraged working from home rather than commuting to the office since 2019. We have established offices throughout Australia to ensure teams can minimise travel interstate and concentrate local resources. As a result, air travel requirements have been significantly decreased, with GreenCollar making greater use of video conferencing software. GreenCollar also aims to implement a policy to offset all international and domestic air travel.
What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
Australia is transitioning towards net-zero across all industries, and it is clear that investors, shareholders and customers are beginning to demand more from their suppliers, partners, and purchases. Climate Active certification sets organisations apart from those who continue to operate business as usual. It is up to organisation to pave the way to a net-zero future.
