What are Greenfleet carbon offsets?
Greenfleet carbon offsets are native reforestation projects that capture carbon from the atmosphere to compensate for the emissions created by your own activities.
As an environmental not-for-profit organisation our mission is to protect our climate by restoring our forests. When choosing Greenfleet carbon offsets, you are taking real, tangible climate action by helping fund forest restoration projects around Australia.
Of course, carbon offsetting is only part of the solution to climate change. Avoiding and reducing our carbon footprint is just as important.
When you offset with Greenfleet, you are taking matters in your own hands and walking the talk with practical climate action.
Even if you reduce your emissions significantly, it is unlikely that you will eliminate all sources of greenhouse gases in your life. All greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere are contributing to climate change and we still need to deal with emissions that have been released in the past.
Through Greenfleet's carbon offsets, you're directly funding native reforestation projects around Australia. Forests capture carbon dioxide that has already been released into the atmosphere, reducing the overall atmospheric concentrations.
The impact of your offset donations is huge as Greenfleet's native forests do this and much more: they reduce salinity and soil erosion, improve water quality in rivers and streams, protect and enhance Australian unique biodiversity and provide essential food and habitat to native wildlife.
What can I offset?
Any action or product that creates a greenhouse gas emission can be offset. At Greenfleet we focus on offsetting emissions generated through vehicles, air travel and the gas and electricity used by households and businesses.
For instance, let's say you drive a medium-sized car. To offset the average emissions of your car (4.3 tonnes CO2-e) it'll cost you less than a cup of coffee a week! That's right, for an offset donation for only $60.16* a year or $1.16 a week, Greenfleet will plant enough native trees on your behalf to offset your annual car's emissions... It's easy to take stance against climate change, isn't it?
