Carbon 4 Good
Carbon 4 Good is a simple, affordable way for New Zealand business to combat climate change. Whatever your industry, your company produces CO2 as part of simply doing business – through air travel, producing a product, or powering your office. We all contribute to climate change. But we each have the ability to tackle this issue. And there is a solution... Carbon 4 Good.
What is Carbon 4 Good?
Delivered by the Sustainable Business Network, Carbon 4 Good is a flexible, comprehensive programme to help New Zealand businesses offset CO2 emissions that result from their business activities. We have identified tree planting as an easy, tangible offset option. Trees absorb carbon in the process of making wood and provide other co-benefits for the environment and people. We are also developing a number of unique carbon offset opportunities, so please watch this space.
