Australias’ carbon footprint is 19.8 tonnes per person, per year. Reduce where you can, offset the rest. Select an Impact Plan that suits you.
Every tree counts
Starting small with this plan you will still have a lasting and meaningful impact. This is a perfect plan to start offsetting a portion of your everyday carbon footprint.
C02 tonnes offset: 7/yr
For less than $1 a day this is a great plan if you’re already living an eco-positive life and want to offset the rest of your everyday carbon footprint.
C02 tonnes offset: 12/yr
Go carbon positive
By offsetting more carbon emissions than the average Australian generates per year you’ll be going beyond carbon neutral and become climate positive.
C02 tonnes offset: 23/yr
everyday carbon emissions
Not sure about your carbon emissions? Here are some examples of CO2 emissions per year from everyday living.
Daily flat white (dairy milk) = 0.12 CO2e tonnes/year
Weekly craft beers = 0.19 CO2e tonnes/year
Long showers (7mins) = 0.57 CO2e tonnes/year
Feeding your pooch = 0.8 CO2 tonnes/year
Weekend away (incl. return flight flight) = 1.3 CO2e tonnes/year
Driving to work (medium-sized car) = 1.49 CO2e tonnes/year
Other general driving (medium-sized car) = 2.81 CO2e tonnes/year
Food production for a vegetarian = 1.7 CO2e tonnes/year
Food production for a meat lover = 3.3 CO2e tonnes/year
Household energy use (1 person) = 7.8 CO2e tonnes/year
Throw in your clothes, possessions, shared services like roads, shopping centres, hospitality etc. and it all adds up.
Reduce where you can. Offset the rest.
