How Earth Sanctuary remains 100% carbon neutral
Any excess carbon produced by Earth Sanctuary (that is not already offset through its own renewable resources such as solar and wind generation or rain water catchment), is offset through the purchase of Australian Native Reforestation (Gold Standard VERs) in the Yarra Yarra biodiversity corridor in partnership with Carbon Neutral Australia.
The Gold Standard is widely considered to be the highest standard in the world for carbon offsets. They are a no-profit foundation established under Swiss Law and funded by public and private donors. ‘The Gold Standard’ have committed themselves to implementing the Kyoto Protocol in the spirit of true and long tern emissions reductions and sustainable development.
