Icetrek is a Carbon Neutral Business
What does this mean?
NoCO2 Certification. Icetrek Expeditions has been certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Reduction Institute. CRI is itself certified under the Greenhouse Gas Abatement Scheme (GGAS) and in the final pocess of certification under the Australian government's Greenhouse Friendly programme.
What has been offset. Icetrek has implemented a plan to negate 100% of its emissions. ALL of Icetrek's products, services and operations are PreGreen, meaning that all of our emissions have been offset prior to customers purchasing from us. So, you can rest assured that Icetrek has negated everything from the manufacture of the polyethylene in our Flexi bindings to the fuel used in our polar flights to the computers used in our office. All of our products can display the 'Carbon Neutral Product' logo show here.
How does this actually benefit the Earth? Icetrek purchases carbon credits through CRI. All money collected by CRI is invested into the environment by replacing inefficient polluting technologies with energy efficient technologies and renewable energy resources. Some examples include the light bulb replacement program and landfill diversion projects.
Into the future. Icetrek submits its emissions tally every quarter to the CRI and purchases the appropriate carbon credits. Further to this we provide proof of our ongoing commitment to reduce our emissions, from seeking and engaging alternative carbon-conscious suppliers to altering our energy consumption behaviour.
