The Australian Federal Government Climate Active Certification Process
Step 1: Make Application
Step 2: Calculate Applicable Emissions
Step 3: Develop and Implement an Emissions Reduction Strategy
Step 4: Purchase Offsets (as required)
Step 5: Arrange Independent Validation
Step 6: Publish Carbon Neutral Business Status
What Does It Mean To Be Carbon Neutral
To become carbon neutral, organisations calculate the emissions generated by their activity (such as driving or flying or electricity use), then reduce these emissions as much as possible and finally compensate for the remaining unavoidable emissions by purchasing carbon offsets or carbon credits.
To Achieve Net Zero Carbon Emission Status, Watt Utilities Will Be Utilising Carbon Offsets and / or Carbon Credits
We have begun a project to achieve Climate Active Certification for both our building and for our organisation.
