CARBON OFFSET

Te Kākano has set up a simple and local offset initiative that provides an affordable way for businesses to help combat climate change. It is based on the Landcare CarboNZero calculators and using their recommended offset cost of  $28.75 per tonne CO2-e. Native trees assist in removing carbon from the atmosphere (approximately 2.5 tC/ha/yr on average).

 

Local businesses, conference organisers and attendees, people who travel for activities they enjoy, tourists  are using this scheme to offset carbon emissions created during the course of what they do. These carbon offset contributions are used to plant eco-sourced native plants in the Upper Clutha region.

 

Examples of current contributors: snowsports enthusiasts who travel locally and internationally to compete or enjoy their sport, tramping club members who drive to tramping tracks, businesses who are encouraging their clients to contribute in a manner relevant to their business (miles driven, forgoing daily laundering of towels).

 

If your group ot company is interested in joining this scheme, feel free to contact us to further discuss your options.
