The Change Cowper campaign is now carbon neutral. We have purchased nine tons of offsets through Greenfleet Australia to cover ourselves for 12 months. Our offsets pay for the planting of trees in biodiverse forests in Australia.
The figure is based on a calculation made for the 2016 election for a Sydney electorate. The figure arrived at was two tons. An extra ton has been added for this election in Cowper due to the geographic size of the electorate. Three tons were purchased in May 2018 and another six tons purchased in November 2018.
