What Sustainable Business Consultants is doing to reduce carbon emissions

Sustainable Business Consultants (SBC) has been working with its clients to measure, reduce and offset carbon emissions for over a decade. They also advise on developing sustainability strategies and plans as well as climate risk and opportunity assessments and strategies. Having a carbon emissions strategy involves a combined approach of commitment, education, developing initiatives, sound investment and ongoing planning and monitoring. SBC can help with all of these elements. They can also help you to achieve carbon neutral certification.

SBC’s Suzanne Ridding is a Registered Consultant with the Climate Active Network for Organisations, Events and Precincts. Suzanne can assist you in every step of the way including creating your carbon inventory, developing emissions reduction strategies and choosing carbon offsets. SBC can also undertake technical assessments as part of the Climate Active certification application and renewal requirements.

Suzanne advises a wide range of clients in varying industries including Uniting Communities – Carbon Neutral Adelaide’s inaugural Ambassador and the first organisation in South Australia to become carbon neutral. SBC was instrumental in the development of a business case and evaluation of a 1.1MW solar power system at Adelaide Airport and has also developed projects there to reduce energy, fuel, waste and other emissions sources and to set procurement strategies. Suzanne has also developed and provided education programs for staff including an e-learning module about carbon management and going carbon neutral.

As a small organisation, Sustainable Business Consultants has kept its carbon footprint low by cycling or using public transport to travel, offsetting the few flights they take and recycling 100% of their waste. They hardly ever print, meaning they use less than one ream of (carbon neutral) paper per year and their energy usage is minimal. Proprietor Suzanne Ridding is also a Climate Leader and gives talks on climate change and carbon reduction to companies, communities and not-for-profits.
