Carbon Offsetting

You can help slow down the effects of climate change

Most scientists agree that greenhouse gases generated from human activity play a significant role in climate change.

We believe Australia’s changing climate represents a significant challenge to individuals, communities, governments, businesses and industry, as well as many opportunities to implement new solutions that are lasting and impactful.

At Simplygreen, we are passionate about helping our customers minimise their impact on the environment. One of the ways we do this is by offsetting the carbon emissions generated by every customers’ novated lease car. Over 85% of our customers generously offset their own carbon emissions, and Simplygreen tops up the rest to ensure 100% carbon offsetting of our fleet.

Our efforts are aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals: 7 – Affordable and Clean Energy and 13 – Climate Action.

We’re also continuing to explore how we can encourage and support our customers to transition to electric and hybrid vehicles, which generate little or no emissions.

Certificate of climate protection with South Pole

Simplygreen purchases carbon offset credits from our environmental partner, South Pole, who allocate the credits towards some of the most pressing environmental issues and projects around the world, including in Australia.

In 2018 and 2019, the total amount of carbon credits that have been purchased by members and Simplygreen has exceeded $20,000.

Our most recent purchase of credits was for $6,000 as a result of the CO2 emitted by out novated car fleet from the 1st July 2019 – 31 December 2019. By offsetting the CO2 generated, we’re supporting the following environmental projects:
