Why offset emissions?


Global warming and climate change

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we are facing today.

The IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report (2007)1 concludes that global warming has accelerated in recent decades, and there is new and stronger evidence that warming over the past 50 years is attributable to the increase in greenhouse gas emissions associated with human activities.

Scientific consensus is that we need to reduce emissions 80% by 2050 (against a baseline of 1990 levels) to stabilise our climate and prevent unprecedented negative impacts on the economy and our climate.

We, as a responsible society, have the ability to tackle climate change.

At Greenfleet we believe that we all need to AVOID and REDUCE greenhouse gas emissions, not just OFFSET them, to protect our climate and planet.

Be part of the solution


On its own, carbon offsetting does not provide an answer to global warming, but it does have a large part to play in the overall approach to carbon management. Even if you reduce your emissions significantly, you are unlikely to eliminate all sources of greenhouse gases in your life.

A carbon offset initiative is an immediate and cost-effective way to take responsibility for your own environmental impact and to be part of the solution to mitigate climate change.

 

Choose environmentally and socially responsible carbon offsets

Greenfleet's native forests recapture carbon dioxide that has already been released into the atmosphere, while also restoring habitat and biodiversity. Through photosynthesis, the carbon dioxide is converted into oxygen by the forests.

Many of Australia's leading companies, government authorities, SMEs and households already took action to mitigate climate change and trust Greenfleet to offset their cars, energy use and air travels.
