How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

Sustainable Living Fabrics are proud to be one of the first Australian companies to be fully certified carbon neutral. We first embarked on this journey back in 2008 by investing in the planting of over 30,000 trees in the Murray Darling Basin. Later, we were one of the first companies to be on board with Climate Active.

Why are you carbon neutral?

In the last decade, the company realised how important it was to take action on climate change no matter how small and we were eager to do our part. Becoming part of Climate Active and the subsequent investment in carbon credits ensues that we are responding to the threats associated with the welfare of the global environment.

What are the benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

The main benefit we observe is a not only a satisfaction that we as a company are taking action on climate change, but also that we market ourselves as such and are positively recognised by our customers for doing so.

What offset projects do you support?

The carbon credits we purchase to offset our energy usage covers various projects around the world, mainly in energy intensive countries in Asia.

How can consumers support you?

We like to point out to any customers that by buying our products, they are investing in carbon credits and hence offset projects somewhere in the world.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

To further reduce emissions, we have implemented various changes over the years including energy efficient lighting to reusing various manufacturing products to simple things like turning off lights and minimal use of heating and air conditioning.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

Carbon neutral certification is a very worthwhile endeavour for any business wanting to have a positive effect on the global environment. The certification process is thorough, reliable and most importantly credible. It is not simply greenwashing or writing your own reporting style of credentials.
