“Going carbon neutral recognises our commitment to being part of the solution to climate change – for the benefit of all.”
Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since June 2021.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
Going carbon neutral recognises our commitment to being part of the solution to climate change – for the benefit of all. It’s part of our approach to sustainability, which strengthens our core fund value of being community focussed.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
We hope that our carbon neutral certification encourages other organisations to look at how they can play a role in combating climate change. It’s also important to us, as an organisation, that we live by our fund values.
What offset projects do you support?
A wind farm project in India, a West Arnhem land fire abatement project in Australia and a global forestry project.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
Some of the actions we’ve taken to help us reduce emissions include:
- moving our key business operations to a 6 star Green Star rated building,
- targeting a 4.5 star NABERS water rating,
- incorporating a practical recycling program to reduce landfill waste,
- utilising a smart lift system that groups together passengers in a way that uses less energy,
- and donating our decommissioned technology to social enterprise PonyUp for Good to be recycled.
What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
Certification is a great way to formally review your business operations, engage relevant stakeholders and then together celebrate your successes as an organisation.
