In 2022, ReGen became a certified carbon neutral organisation through the Australian Government's Climate Active program.
The process involved us collecting extensive data about our operating activities to enable the measurement of our carbon inventory. The scope includes electricity use in our office and in working from home, our business travel and employee commuting, office equipment and supplies, our waste and use of professional services.
We were also required to set an emissions reduction strategy which is headlined with an overall target to reduce our emissions by 30 per cent by 2026 compared to our 2021 baseline.
What we don’t reduce, we purchase offsets for annually. For our initial certification, we have invested in the Yarra Yarra biodiversity corridor in the northern Wheatbelt of WA – a project that helps to restore ecosystems and preserve threatened and unique flora and fauna. This local project is combined with an investment in the Delhi Metro, which reduces emissions by replacing conventional forms of transport. Both projects contribute to the environmental, social and economic aims of the Sustainable Development Goals.You can read the Public Disclosure Statement we provided to Climate here.
