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.

But First, Reduce Emissions Where You Can

Carbon emissions are a reality of many everyday activities. The energy we use at work and home, driving our cars, travelling, and the food we eat all produce emissions and contribute to our carbon footprints.

A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon that an individual produces. The less carbon emitted, the smaller your footprint becomes. By reducing our carbon footprints, we can actively minimise the negative impact being made on our climate and environment.

At Greenfleet, we believe that carbon emissions should be reduced as much as possible. In the transition to a low carbon economy, offsetting provides a solution for the emissions that cannot currently be avoided.

Choose Environmentally & 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.
