We moved our office in June into a more central location in the building, closer to heating and cooling sources, and with better natural light. We have noticed a drop in our power usage from the same period in past years as a result. We switched from our energy provider's carbon offset coal power to 100% renewable energy in January.
2018-2019 Operational Carbon Footprint Assessment
Our Carbon Audit report was completed again in September by Heidi Fog, Sustainability Consultant. Our total carbon emissions were reduced by 18% on last year's efforts. This was in part due to upgrading our vehicle to a newer, more fuel-efficient model, and not taking any flights during the period.
2017-2018 Operational Carbon Footprint Assessment
Our first Carbon Audit report was completed in September by Heidi Fog. Our total Operational Carbon Footprint was calculated at 17.00tCO2e. We have purchased Gold Standard Carbon Credits to offset our emissions.
We aim to monitor our energy consumption closely and reduce our footprint further in the next financial year. We have already achieved reduced power consumption over the last 6 months. A small irregular rise in the power consumption compared to the same period last year helped alert us to a faulty hot-water service which was able to be replaced with a more energy-efficient model.
