How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

Since July 2021.

Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?

Pinnacle is focused on continuous improvement, striving to do better by building a long-term, sustainable firm that focuses on our staff, customers and shareholders, as well as the communities in which we engage. We are committed to offsetting unavoidable emissions to achieve carbon neutrality to begin to address our environmental impact.

What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

Pinnacle believe the first step to managing climate risk is to understand our emissions sources and verify the integrity of those sources. Through carbon neutral certification, Pinnacle can better manage our GHG risk exposure and identify areas for improvement.

Why did you choose this project?

Jaiprakash Power Ventures is an Indian power company, currently operating the largest hydroelectric power plant in the private sector in India. Pinnacle supported their Vishnuprayag Hydro-electric Project, stapled with Australian Greenfleet biodiversity offsets.

How can the community support you?

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

Pinnacle is committed to offsetting unavoidable emissions to achieve carbon neutrality and has implemented a carbon reduction strategy to reduce our carbon intensity.

This includes strategies to:

  • increase energy efficiencies;
  • replace emission-intensive activities with those that generate fewer emissions;
  • only partner with software and hardware providers that have a clear climate reduction strategy that aligns with the firm;
  • increase employee awareness of responsible use of single use and disposable products;
  • ensure our suppliers are aware of our commitment to reduce single use plastics in the firm;
  • and support Pinnacle Affiliates to innovate and adopt best practice carbon management and ESG integration.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
