Carbon neutrality accelerates around Australia

More net zero carbon organisations in 2018 – we couldn’t be happier

Carbon neutrality accelerates in Australian organisations (wind turbines, renewable energy)Pangolin has seen a record number of new National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) certifications this year, much of it due to our work with iconic organisations such as the Sydney Opera House. We are especially delighted to certify our first school in Queensland,

Corinda State High School in Brisbane. Corinda is currently the only certified carbon neutral school in Australia. Congratulations Corinda!

NCOS completed

Here are a few organisations that we can list now as they have fully completed the NCOS process (wait for it, more coming soon…).

  • Taronga Conservation Society Australia – Taronga Zoo and Taronga Western Plains Zoo
  • FleetPlus
  • APN Outdoor
  • International Lubricant Distributors

Find their stories here on the Federal Government’s website.

Certified NCOS events – it’s also an option 

Increasingly we are certifying events. Here are a few in 2018:

Organisations are driving change in Australia

The climate science is clear and indisputable, and while lacking the policies we so desperately hope for, businesses are not waiting around to make change. We see that more and more climate leadership drives commercial success. Be part of it. Talk to us about what your organisation can do.
