The Process

How we can help your business:


Quantifying the carbon footprint of your business and/or products is the first step that needs to be completed before a credible marketing claim of low carbon or carbon neutrality is made.


The results of your carbon footprint analysis will help identify the certification options available to your business under the NoCO2 Program, on your journey to becoming carbon neutral.


Once certified CRI will work with your business to identify short, medium and long-term emissions reduction strategies including offsetting unavoidable emissions to meet your carbon reduction commitments.


CRI works with our customers every quarter to monitor the reduction strategies that they have implemented including updating and recalculating their carbon footprint.


Promoting your certification under the NoCO2 Program to your staff, customers and suppliers will assist your business in attracting climate conscious customers, and make your business a leader in social responsibility and communicating environmental action.


Who We Are

Follow in the footsteps of greatness

  • Jane Davidson – Minister for Environment and Sustainability, Wales 2007-2011

      “Wouldn’t we all benefit from living in societies that were more careful, more resourceful, more respectful and more forward-thinking?”

  • Arron Wood – Winner of 2006 United Nations Individual Award for Outstanding Service to the Environment

    “Making ourselves the solution, rather than part of the problem is our greatest challenge.”

  • Professor Tim Flannery – Australian mammalogist, palaeontologist, environmentalist and global warming activist.

    “We could go over the cliff. You would hope not. You would hope that people see what needs to be done. It’s not rocket science. It’s not difficult. It’s not even all that costly. It’s actually about the way you think about the world.”

  • President Barack Obama – Speaking to the 2014 graduating class of UC Irvine.

    “We need scientists to design new fuels, we need farmers to help grow them. We need engineers to invent new technologies. We need entrepreneurs to sell those technologies. We need workers to operate assembly lines that hum with high tech, zero-carbon components. We need builders to hammer into place the clean-energy age.”
