Greenfleet offers a simple and effective way to make your business greener.
How can I make my business greener?
Right now, it is critical for businesses to take the lead on reducing their environmental impact. Every organisation can take steps to reduce their carbon footprint such as minimising waste, recycling and choosing sustainable procurement practices.
Greenfleet can help you offset the carbon emissions you can’t avoid, by planting native biodiverse forests on your behalf. Greenfleet forests provide many environmental benefits by:
- capturing carbon emissions
- creating resilient ecosystems
- building habitat for koalas and other native wildlife
- improving soil and water quality
- restoring biodiversity in Australia and New Zealand.
With Greenfleet you can achieve your sustainability objectives and demonstrate to your staff, clients, customers and suppliers that you are committed to making a positive impact on the environment.
How can Greenfleet help reduce the carbon footprint of my business
Greenfleet enables you to take climate action by offsetting your carbon emissions. We can tailor a solution specifically for your business to reduce its carbon footprint. You can offset most carbon emitting activities including:
- corporate fleet or individual vehicles
- domestic and international flights
- staff, working in offices or remotely
- deliveries and freight
- conferences and events
- calculated tonnes of CO2-e.
Your support will enable our native reforestation work and we’ll plant enough native trees that will capture the carbon emissions you want to offset, over their lifetime.
Greenfleet can provide you with a certificate and ongoing reporting that shows the positive impact you have made and the emissions you have reduced through our native reforestation work. Our Engagement Team can help you communicate your commitment to reducing your organisation’s environmental impact.
Can my business become Carbon Neutral with Greenfleet?
For organisations seeking or maintaining government Carbon Neutral accreditation, Greenfleet offers a unique package of Greenfleet offsets bundled with Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard approved credits.
This joint approach to your carbon offsetting initiatives ensure you receive:
- the Standard approved credits that can be used to meet your Climate Active carbon neutral certification from an existing international project
- Greenfleet carbon offsets which invest in the Australian environment, contributing to climate change resilience and strong biodiversity outcomes.

Does my business need to be Carbon Neutral Certified?
Carbon Neutral Certification is a necessary step for some organisations seeking or maintaining government accreditation. You can speak to our team about whether this is right for you.
By avoiding, reducing, and offsetting your emissions, you are already taking strides to make your company more environmentally friendly.
Unlike most carbon credit schemes which are derived from completed projects, Greenfleet offsets capture carbon through our future biodiverse native tree planting projects in Australia and New Zealand. This means over the lifetime of the trees planted, carbon emissions are sequestered from the atmosphere.
