More: A carbon neutral workforce

More & Greenfleet

Carbon-neutral workforce

At More, we're proud to be a carbon-neutral workforce. What this means is that we calculate the carbon footprint of all our team members and offset these emissions by planting trees in native forests around Australia, helping to conserve biodiversity and restore habitat for wildlife.

The offsetting of the More team is facilitated by Greenfleet, a not-for-profit organisation and Australia's very first carbon offset provider.

Greenfleet forests are legally protected for up to 100 years, so we know that the impact will deliver long-lasting environmental benefits and enable important ecosystem restoration in Australia.

What is carbon offsetting?

Offseting is a way to counteract the emissions we can't reduce or avoid. You can offset any carbon emitting activity in your life - like the emissions associated with running your car, business or household.

Offsetting emissions isn't just about mitigating climate change - depending on how you go about it, the process can also have wider, positive impacts on the environment, which is what the More team aims to achieve through its partnership with Greenfleet.

How does Greenfleet offsetting work?

As our chosen carbon offsetting partner, Greenfleet calculate the carbon footprint of our team, and plant enough biodiverse, native trees to capture the equivalent emissions from the atmosphere.

In addition to capturing the carbon, these native forests are also creating habitat for wildlife, increasing biodiversity and restoring land and water quality. Since 1997, Greenfleet have planted more than 9.6 million native trees across 500 forests in Australia and New Zealand.

Greenfleet's dedicated forestry team conduct thorough research and use carefully-selected local nurseries to source the seeds and seedlings to be planted. The trees planted are always native and endemic to the area that they're planted in.

These forests are closely monitored for the first five years of their life to ensure they are establishing well. After this, they are monitored remotely and the Greenfleet team will visit them again as needed following events such as bushfires or drought.

Importantly, the trees growing in Greenfleet reforestation projects are protected for up to 100 years from the time they're planted. This is so they can reach their full potential, make a positive impact on land quality and create biodiverse havens for our native wildlife. These trees continue to sequster carbon as they mature, so protecting them also ensures that they take long term, critical climate action.
