What does it mean to be ‘ carbon neutral ‘? How easy is it to be ‘ carbon neutral ‘?
Right now climate change dominates the news. How can an individual, or small business make an effective impact on this big issue?. This is the question the team at Australia In Style asked when preparing our sustainability policy.
You may be interested in an idea that is easy to implement right now. It also has an effective impact in the short, and long term.
Did you know that Australia In Style is carbon neutral ?…. In fact, the first event transport company in Sydney to be so.
What does it mean to be carbon neutral ? How can you become carbon neutral ?
Here’s one option we selected …….. By connecting with Greenfleet.com.au Australia In Style plants native trees in needy areas. The number of trees is based on our fuel consumption. The amount of CO2 emitted by our vehicles is calculated and balanced by the amount of oxygen a specific number of native plants emit. This equates to being carbon neutral.
It is easy and helps us feel we are making a contribution. It counters the feeling of overwhelm and eco anxiety.
How does Greenfleet’s carbon neutral program work ?
When you offset your emissions with Greenfleet, your funds are going directly towards biodiverse revegetation in Australia and New Zealand. They plant enough native trees to capture the carbon generated by the activities you have offset.
Importantly too Greenfleet ensures that the trees planted are legally protected for up to 100 years by an on-title agreement with the landowner. While they grow, the trees will also provide habitat for native wildlife, improve land quality and reduce erosion among many other benefits.
