Decarbonise your business
Address the climate crisis by reducing the carbon emissions of your organisation’s activities. Reducing your emissions is the most important step on your climate journey.
We can help you:

- Set targets that suit your organisation’s growth and scope
- Design and scale actions to decarbonise your supply chain
Carbon Reduction Plans
As international pressure grows for the global economy to transition to a net-zero future, businesses are increasingly held accountable for their greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing your organisation’s emissions allows you to stay ahead of the curve and take meaningful and direct action to mitigate the global climate crisis.
By engaging with Carbon Neutral to develop your Carbon Reduction Plan, our carbon consultants will work closely with you to help your business set ambitious, yet realistic, emission reduction targets and identify practical opportunities to achieve your goals.
Carbon Reduction Plans can deliver broad benefits for businesses:
- Identify business and energy efficiency opportunities, reducing operational costs.
- Enhance brand reputation and gain a market edge on your competitors.
- Meet compliance and ESG requirements.
- Respond to market, consumer, and investor pressures.
- Improve staff morale and engagement by taking a lead in environmental action.
- Reduce business risk by improving carbon emission foresight. This can reduce the risk of sunk costs in high-carbon technologies and practices and improve your resistance to future carbon-based economic externalities such as domestic carbon taxes and international carbon tariffs.
- Lower your reliance on carbon offsets in an increasingly shifting market.

Improve your energy efficiency
As the world strives to limit rising temperatures to 1.5°C, improving energy efficiencies remains a key means for organisations to contribute to this global effort. Reducing energy consumption is a win-win for any organisation; it minimises the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and can provide significant savings on your energy costs.
Carbon Neutral can provide Energy Audits to help monitor and analyse your organisation’s electricity, fuel, gas and water consumption on a site-by-site basis. These include assessments on your lighting and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC).
Reducing energy costs and consumption may be easier than you think. Carbon Neutral’s senior carbon advisors have significant experience conducting site energy evaluations. You can select varying levels of service, from a small-scale assessment to a high level AS/NZS 3598:2014 compliant audit.
By auditing the way in which your organisation uses energy and looking at how your staff use facilities, we can determine the best way for you to become more energy efficient, reduce costs and in turn provide significant benefits to the environment. We typically find that our clients can achieve energy cost reductions of between 20-30% per annum, often offsetting the costs of engaging Carbon Neutral’s services.
Case study: M. J. Bale
M. J. Bale recently became Australia’s first fully carbon neutral fashion brand, after measuring, reducing, and offsetting their entire business’ carbon footprint.
Part of their approach involved developing the world’s first trial of Carbon Neutral wool.
They’re investing in restoration of degraded land by supporting our Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor project for their carbon offsets.
