Balance Carbon has been at the forefront of the new low carbon economy in Australia since being founded in 2008. Balance Carbon has helped many of Australia’s leading corporations by providing audit and advisory services during a time of emerging and dynamic policy, standards and legislation.
Balance Carbon’s values align with Carbon Neutral Adelaide’s focus on an economy and society that increasingly embraces the true costs of using resources and generating waste. As a result, Balance Carbon fully supports Carbon Neutral Adelaide’s aspiration for an engaged society, more inclusive economy and new carbon neutral minimum standard for how cities can operate.
Balance Carbon operates with zero net emissions. By monitoring office operations, IT servers, travel, products and services, Balance Carbon continually finds ways to reduce emissions and offset those that are unavoidable through the purchase of Verified Carbon Units in alignment with Australia’s National Carbon Offset Standard.
Balance Carbon also assists many corporate and government organisations nationally to plan, operate and learn about their operations, supporting them to make data driven decisions in their transition into the new low carbon economy.
In 2016, Balance Carbon launched a new software that provides environmental and financial data to drive sustainability. Called Trellis Sustainability Faster, the software is already being used by Local Governments, Universities and other multi-facility organisations.
