With over 750,000 followers, we are a popular resource for companies and individuals to measure, reduce and offset their emissions.
Resources for Businesses
The Institute provides free tutorials and templates to assist small and medium sized companies to measure and reduce their emissions.
Emission Reduction Program
We offer a a free Emission Reduction Program for businesses, with the policies and procedures for their organisation to reduce emissions.
GHG Accounting Tutorial
The GHG Accounting Tutorial assists businesses to conduct a thorough GHG emissions survey using recognised standards and procedures.
Offset your emissions
When you buy Carbon Offsets or Carbon Credits you are financing verified projects that reduce and remove carbon from the atmosphere.
Projects slow down the rate of global warming, buying the world vital time to make the transition to low carbon economies.
The Kyoto Protocol recognised that it’s impossible for a business to entirely eliminate their emissions, so what remains can be offset.
The Institute believes that government regulation alone will not stop climate change. Companies that take action themselves to reduce and voluntarily offset their emissions must be rewarded by consumers and investors.
The Review of Climate Friendly Companies is a popular source of consumer information on companies that are genuinely meeting their sustainability goals and our Twitter site has now grown to over 70,000 followers.
Consumers and investors increasingly want to support climate friendly companies.
14,000 climate scientists have issued a warning that we may soon hit the point of no return.
This is where climate change becomes irreversible no matter what actions we take
We must act now to reduce our emissions.
Measure your Carbon Footprint
A carbon footprint is the amount of CO2 and other greenhouse gasses that you emit each year. Use our personal carbon footprint calculator to see how many tonnes of CO2 you use and get advice on how to reduce your emissions.
According to the EPA, the average amount per year for a person in America and Australia is 16 tonnes.
