Climate Positive Organisation announcement

We’re delighted to announce that EV PowerHouse has partnered with trace (@our_trace) to become a Climate Positive Organisation! This means that we have measured the carbon emissions of our buildings and travel and offset those emissions through certified carbon credits and tree planting.

At EV PowerHouse we are passionate about sustainability and do what we can to minimise harm to our planet through [e.g. recycling waste, minimising unnecessary travel] and this represents the next step on our sustainability journey. This month we’re going a step further running a staff net zero campaign to measure and reduce our personal carbon footprint. You can see our impact and read about the amazing projects we are supporting here https://www.our-trace.com/brand/ev-powerhouse.

What it means to be ‘climate positive’

Being a climate positive brand means we are working to minimise the negative environmental impacts of doing business and have chosen to offset our unavoidable emissions.

Why? Because carbon offsets are a highly effective way of reducing CO2 pollution in communities across the world. Without the funds received from the carbon credits we buy, many biodiversity projects would not be feasible, mangrove forests could not be restored, rural communities could not afford to install and operate wind farms, African communities would burn wood to get clean water and remote industrial towns would have to resort to fossil fuels. We chose to offset through

Trace because they handpick the best projects and bring to life the amazing impact of these projects, so that our customers can rest assured that their investment leaves a positive trace. Offsets are not the panacea, but they play an important role in restoring balance in our atmosphere.

 

Climate positive vs carbon neutral

We use the term 'climate positive' rather than 'carbon neutral' for three key reasons:

A

It is inherently more POSITIVE and we think the climate change narrative needs some optimism!

B

We prefer to slightly overestimate your emissions to ensure you have offset more than your footprint which means you have a net positive (rather than neutral) impact.

C

‘Carbon neutral’ is often used in conjunction with government certification which is costly and time consuming – we help brands that can’t afford this by helping you become climate positive in a matter of days. It’s better to do something than nothing!

About trace - snippets

We have worked with Climate Tech company trace, to become Climate Positive. We worked with the team at trace to measure our carbon footprint, helping us understand where we could reduce our emissions, and have offset those emissions we currently can’t avoid by funding certified climate projects from the trace portfolio.

Trace is a Climate Tech company on a mission to remove the barriers to climate action for individuals and businesses, through its accessible software platform and community. 

Trace is a female-founded and Australian-born Tech company focused on transparency, simplicity and making carbon neutrality accessible to everyone.

How does offsetting with trace work?

  1. Trace calculates the emissions of your business based on the information you provide about your supply chain and/or operations.
  2. You consider the results of your carbon footprint assessment to better understand how you might reduce your emissions.
  3. Trace purchases certified carbon offsets (from our portfolio of certified projects) on your behalf. Example projects; biodiversity conservation, renewable energy investment, tree planting.
  4.  You become Climate Positive, meaning for every tonne of CO2 you emit, 1 tonne is removed elsewhere. Plus, the projects you fund also support multiple other UN Sustainable Development Goals.
