    Carbon Offsetting

    Carbon Neutral provides offsets that range in price from $2 per tonne upward of $30, including tree planting and accredited carbon offsets (VCUs). The cost range of or offsets is dependent on project type and there are substantial discounts on volume (usually applicable for tonnages of >150 t).


    Plant-A-Tree Program

    Tree planting on behalf of an organisation is a simple way to maximise a firm’s environmental status, and demonstrates a real commitment to the environment to its customers.


    Carbon Neutral offers biodiverse conservation plantings using native Australian trees and shrubs. While there is a place for monoculture planting, the advantage of biodiverse planting is that it helps to keep the environment in natural balance. The trees and shrubs we plant sequester carbon dioxide, and biodiversity, address issues such as salinity and soil erosion, and provide habitat for the endangered Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo, Malleefowl and other threatened flora and fauna.

     

    Carbon Neutral’s Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is Australia's largest biodiverse reforestation carbon sink with over 9,000 ha of mixed native species planted since 2007.  Carbon Neutral is leading this important reforestation project, with more than 18 million native trees and shrubs already planted.  The plantings are also protected by a 100-year Carbon Rights and Carbon Covenant.


    With a minimum annual commitment of either 23 tonnes (min. $480.70 [incl. GST]), based on our Australian biodiverse native forestry offsets, or 160 trees (min $484.00 [incl. GST]) plus a fee of $150 [incl. GST], a firm automatically becomes a Carbon Neutral's Green SupporterThis entitles the firm to usage of our sought-after Carbon Neutral logo in marketing materials and on its website.
