EnvironArc is an Australian based specialist carbon management company, providing specialised technical services, advice and on-going support to organisations, who can then minimise their carbon emissions.
Our trained and accredited professionals assist organisations with greenhouse gas (GHG) emission accounting and reporting processes in accordance with national and international legislation, standards and guidelines.
We use quantifiable emissions reductions with recommended investments that best identify effective offsets.
‘Beyond Carbon’ Conference
Beyond Carbon LogoAs a leading environmental and green building design company, EnvironArc Design was asked to provide a speaker at the LGA ‘Beyond Carbon’ Conference in Adelaide. Stephen Williams, a Green Building Council of Australia “Accredited Professional” with EnvironArc, spoke to local council representatives about all elements of Green Building Design. A booklet developed for councils by EnvironArc was also given out, and free copies are still available for LGA member councils.
EnvironArc was the first individual member of ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). We assist councils who continue with the Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Australia program, which is an innovative international campaign helping local governments and their communities reduce greenhouse gas emissions and hence their impact on the environment.
c3-logo2The certified C3 labelling system (Calculate Control Cut) is an international system developed for Carbon Reduction and Offset.
Accredited international assessors certify organisations which undertake annual independent audits of their greenhouse gas emissions. An EMP (Emission Management Plan) is then implemented to achieve short and long term emission reductions and become Carbon Neutral.
Because of our experience and capabilities, EnvironArc has become the first Australian company accredited as a C³ Assessor.
Organisations requiring international best practice Carbon Neutral certification can contact EnvironArc for further information.
