Carbon Offset

Accredited carbon offsetting is through the purchase of Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCU’s) and it’s what businesses with NZE (Net Zero Emissions) accreditation should be purchasing. 

Local & International Carbon Offsetting

The ‘net’ in net zero is an acknowledgement that actual zero is virtually impossible to achieve whilst fossil fuels still play a role in energy and transport. So even if you run on 100% renewable energy and have electrified your car and tool shed, many of the products you buy (and the collection and disposal of the associated waste) will still have embodied carbon from energy, transport and waste processing emissions (e.g. methane).

What You Can Do

  FNQ grown ACCUs

If you buy FNQ grown ACCU’s to offset your residual emissions, your investment not only helps to restore the environment but also delivers local co-benefits to the Cairns community and economy.

International Offsets  

There are many international organisations who offer Carbon Offsets and while they do not provide the same economic and environmental benefits for the Cairns Region, they can still be a good option to reach that zero emissions target.
