Why offset emissions?

Offset your emissions to help fight the impacts of climate change

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face today.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (2021) concludes that climate change is now happening more rapidly than ever before, and at a rate faster than scientists anticipated. This is impacting extreme weather events across the globe with an increase in floods, bushfires, and the prolonged impact of drought.

The report estimates that we will reach 1.5C of global warming sometime in the next decade and that human influence on climate change is no longer in question. However, it also provided hope that change is possible and that there is a window of time now that humans can positively alter the path we are on.

Through the sustained reduction of emissions into our atmosphere, air quality could improve, temperatures could stabilise, and we could make a difference for the planet.

Together, we can grow our forests and grow climate hope.

It is important that we reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible through our purchase decisions, diet and travel. We should reduce our emissions as much as we can and offset those we cannot avoid.

Global warming and climate change

Be part of the solution

Carbon offsetting can play an important part in taking action against global warming.

Taking climate action by offsetting your emissions through native reforestation is a cost-effective way to reduce your environmental impact and make a difference for our planet.

Removing Carbon Restoring Forests

Choose environmentally and socially responsible carbon offsets

Greenfleet plants native forests that draw down on carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, while restoring habitat and biodiversity. These forests are protected for up to 100 years to take sustainable and long-term climate action for decades to come.

Many of Australia's leading companies, government authorities, SMEs and households are already taking climate action with Greenfleet to mitigate the impacts of climate change. You can join us in taking climate action by offsetting your emissions today.
