Environmental responsibility - you can do something right now!

Using calculators designed by former CSIRO scientist Joel Fleming, a new Australian company, Climate Friendly, measures how much greenhouse gas an individual or a business emits every year and invests in clean energy projects on their behalf. The green investments – including wind farms and shower head exchange programs – save as much
greenhouse gas as the sponsor is emitting, effectively neutralising any overall damage to the climate.

“Carbon dioxide emissions from our homes, businesses, flying and cars are slowly raising the world’s temperature,” says climate friendly director Madeleine Lyons. “Global warming has led to more floods, droughts and other extreme weather events, and the endangering of species including polar bears, coral reefs and butterflies.”

A lot of people say they care about climate change, but they don’t know what to do about it. Instead of waiting for governments to cut growing greenhouse emissions we can now take the matter into our own hands. Even if you don't live in Australia (where Climate Friendly are based) you can still take part, and support our planet by making your home and your business carbon neutral.
