3 Easy Steps to Become Certified as a LowCO2 or NoCO2 Business

There are only 3 easy steps to become certified as LowCO2 or NoCO2:

  1. Assess your carbon footprint
  2. Reduce your carbon emissions
  3. Offset your unavoidable carbon emissions

As your partner, the Carbon Reduction Institute will guide you through the process step-by-step, provide expert advice and help you gain the most out of the program by promoting your business in the Low Carbon Economy.

Assess your carbon footprint

This step involves evaluating and quantifying the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated by your business operations.

It includes examining various aspects such as energy consumption, water usage, waste management, transportation, and other activities that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.

Assessing your carbon footprint helps you understand the extent of your environmental impact and identify areas where improvements can be made.

Reduce your carbon emissions

Once you have assessed your carbon footprint, the next step is to actively work towards reducing your carbon emissions. This involves adopting strategies and practices that aim to minimise the environmental impact of your operations.

Some initiatives to reduce carbon emissions may include:

  • Energy efficiency improvements
  • Water conservation
  • Waste management
  • Transportation
  • Sustainable procurement

Offset your unavoidable carbon emissions

Despite efforts to reduce carbon emissions, there will likely be some emissions that are difficult to eliminate entirely.

In this step, you offset the remaining carbon emissions by investing in projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere.

These projects can include renewable energy initiatives, reforestation efforts, or methane capture from landfills.

By purchasing carbon offsets, you effectively neutralise the impact of your remaining carbon emissions, helping to mitigate climate change.
