Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since March 2021.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
We believe that achieving our work and personal goals should not be to the detriment of the natural environment or society. As sustainability consultants, it was a natural step to take to lead by example and also to gain official recognition for what we have already been doing for many years.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
Every business that becomes carbon neutral is lessening the impact on the environment and contributing to reducing our impact on climate change. If SBC can also influence others to do likewise then we are making a valuable contribution to the world we live in.
What offset projects do you support?
A biodiversity reserve project in Indonesian Borneo.
Why did you choose this project?
Carbon sequestration (through forests) is one of the best ways to reduce global warming. The project in Indonesia contributes to an area of significance in its biodiversity including the provision of habitat for threatened species. This project will prevent further deforestation in a country that is still losing thousands of hectares of forest daily.
How can the community support you?
Become carbon neutral!
Climate Active members and prospective members working together will achieve more for the sustainability of the planet.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
Minimising our own footprint and encouraging and educating others to do the same. This is a key part of our work and how we live our lives.
What has been the impact of your action?
SBC’s carbon emissions are very low already but we have set some actions to take in the coming year. It’s not so much what the impact of our actions is but what it could have been if we didn’t act responsibly.
What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
Do your research, make sure it’s right for your organisation and that you can commit to ongoing action. Find an experience Registered Consultant to help you.
