AGL would like to congratulate the team at Carbon Neutral for taking out the Banksia Natural Capital Award at the prestigious Banksia Awards last evening.

The Banksia Natural Capital Award recognises demonstrated leadership and excellence in valuing, measuring, managing and investing in Australia’s natural capital with the same rigor that we manage all of society’s capital. (Natural Capital refers to all living things and the biological, chemical and physical systems that support them)

AGL proudly launched the AGL Future Forest program for residential customers in July, selecting Carbon Neutral as our inaugural partner in this program. Future Forest enables customers to offset their electricity usage associated emissions for a flat $1 a week.

Providing high levels of integrity is critical in engendering trust in the program. Securing Gold Standard certificates sourced from Carbon Neutral and their Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor supports this commitment. The Gold Standard is an internationally recognised certification which ensures the highest standard and quality assurance in carbon offsetting projects.

This amazing video shows the great work of the Carbon Neutral team.
