Helping to protect our planet

From reducing our emissions, to enabling sustainable behaviours across our people, clients and customers, we're playing an active role in shaping the progress of our industry. Our focus on the environment is demonstrated through our Carbon Offset Program, which was launched in 2008. In the time since the program launched, it has directly contributed to the restoration of biodiverse forests and critical animal habitats, and the sequestration of hundreds of thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere.

Our environmental policy provides an overview of our environmental management approach and activities that support the delivery of our environmental commitments. Find out more here.

First partnering with Greenfleet, a leading carbon offset organisation (and the first of its kind in Australia), we have since expanded our program in 2020 to include partners; The Nature Conservancy and Carbon Positive Australia. Working with these partners, we invest in important restoration projects throughout Australia.  

In 2023, our Carbon Offset Program donated $1.48m to our environmental partners.

Our environmental partners


A long-term partner of ours since 2008, Greenfleet restores biodiverse native forests and animal habitats through ecosystem restoration. To date, our Carbon Offset Program has donated over $12 million to Greenfleet, contributing to approx. 830,000 tonnes of carbon being sequestered over the life of the forests. Through these donations, we’re able to support a number of site projects, including Anam Talamh on Bundjalung Country, restoring a critically endangered lowland forest.

Carbon Positive Australia

A carbon offset partner since 2020, Carbon Positive Australia restores cleared and degraded land by planting native trees and shrubs that are local to the area.

Currently, 100% of donations go towards restoring 1350 hectares of cleared bushland at Eurardy Reserve in Western Australia back to its former natural glory. Eurardy Reserve is situated in one of only 35 global biodiversity hotspots, defined by the rare and declining fauna and flora found in this area. Restoring this site helps make this area more resilient to climate change by supporting the local ecology and sequestering CO2-e.

The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy has partnered with the SA Government and Smartgroup to deliver a project to restore an area in the Adelaide coastal wetlands. It’s the first blue carbon demonstration project in Australia and is the catalyst to establishing other blue carbon projects nationally. Blue carbon is estimated to sequester carbon at a rate faster than forests.

This project will restore natural tidal flows into stranded coastal wetlands creating new areas for mangrove and saltmarsh ecosystems.

Going Electric

Electric Vehicles (EVs)

With millions of Electric Vehicles (EVs) now on the roads around the world, it’s an industry that is continuing to grow – especially in Australia – and we play an active part in that transition. Our strategy focuses on ensuring we provide the education and support to our clients and customers to ensure their transition to an EV is as seamless, cost-effective and simple as possible.
