Carbon Offset Tips
Many everyday activities you undertake and products you consume result in an impact on our environment, including greenhouse gas emissions. This includes every time you use transport powered by fossil fuels. However, there are ways you can reduce your emissions footprint and its influence on climate change by creating your own personal emissions management plan in 3 simple steps:
1) Measure your emissions
You - Use one of the many free online carbon footprint calculators to get a reasonable idea of the size of your emissions footprint. To start try this simple calculator.
Us - We accurately measure our emissions footprint regularly and disclose the findings in our independently audited annual emissions reports that include our National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act report, our Sustainability Report and our Carbon Disclosure Project report.
2) Reduce your emissions
You - Try opting for renewable electricity in your home, locally made products or a smaller car. When you travel try packing less baggage and choose the most efficient form of transport available for your journey. When you need to fly, use an airline that is committed to environmental sustainability.
Us - We continue to improve our fuel efficiency and are working to adopt viable Sustainable Aviation Fuels. By 2050 we plan to have reduced our annual emissions by 50% on a 2005 baseline.
3) Carbon offset the rest
You - Use our Carbon Offset Program for your air travel and use your preferred carbon offset provider for the rest of your emissions. If you have to do an activity that releases emissions it is better to carbon offset these than do nothing.
Us - We carbon offset all tailpipe emissions from our ground vehicles and our employees who fly for business.
