Throughout last year, and despite all the challenges it brought, Greenfleet continued to focus on protecting our climate by restoring our forests. Your support allowed us to continue taking practical action on the ground and we are proud of what we have been able to achieve together.
We revegetated nearly 300 hectares of land across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and New Zealand. These forests are legally protected for up to 100 years and over their lifetime will capture 154,233 tonnes of CO2-e.
We are thrilled to share with you our Impact Report for 2020
Our reforestation work will also provide a number of long term environmental benefits such as building resilient ecosystems, restoring habitat for wildlife, protecting threatened species and improving water quality.
In 2020 Greenfleet also made exciting strides to begin our Reconciliation Action Plan, achieved formal Climate Active Certification and continued our exploration into innovative methods of carbon sequestration.
In 2021, Greenfleet will extend our work on the ground with multiple reforestation projects already planned, including the revegetation of a Queensland property previously used for pine plantations. This project will be critical in restoring habitat for Queensland’s threatened koala population.
We are also excited to have purchased a property in South Gippsland, which we will begin revegetating over the coming years and will become an essential part of our work in soil carbon improvement. Both soil carbon and blue carbon sequestration have important roles to play in the fight against climate change and as an organisation, we look forward to continuing our exploration in these areas.
Our work isn’t possible without your support and the support of our Board, Business Advisory Council and team. We thank everyone involved in helping us take action for the climate in 2020 and look forward to continuing this important work for years to come.
