Welcome to our TAKE2 profile page.

We’re committed to tackling climate change. That’s why we’ve made the TAKE2 pledge. Check out the work we’ve been doing to reduce our emissions and our plans for the future.

Make the TAKE2 pledge and join us in helping keep the temperature rise under two degrees.

Our pledge

We have an obligation to future generations to protect the environment. It's easy to think that as a small business we won't make much difference, but there are a lot of small businesses in the world. Together we can make meaningful change to the way products and services are delivered by consistently looking for ways to minimise our environmental impact.

    Our stories

    2019-2020

    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.
