For a brand with a rich Australian heritage that draws inspiration from our unique landscapes and flora, it’s important for Evodia Australia to respect the environment and minimise the damage placed upon it.
Evodia Australia is proud to announce we offset 100% of emissions from Evodia products.
To achieve this important certification, we conducted a carbon lifecycle analysis on every Evodia product and has committed to do so for each new product too! We now have an inventory of all our product emissions, measured per tonne of carbon dioxide. This includes emissions from raw materials and packaging, manufacturing and production, transportation and disposal.
All emissions of Evodia products are measured and full carbon offset by carbon credits from the Rimba-Raya project in Indonesia.
This initiative focuses on preserving high-conservation-value, tropical, lowland, peat swamp forests – among the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world, habitat for the endangered Borneo orangutan and several other important species. The project has already reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 15 million tonnes and aims to reduce over 130 million tonnes over its 30-year lifespan.
The flow-on benefits of the Rimba-Raya project include local economic growth, employment opportunities for women in the community and support of the Orangutan Foundation International: a program committed to protecting endangered Borneo orangutans. Rimba-Raya is also supporting the health and wellbeing of its local community, distributing ceramic water filters and smokeless cook stoves to all households in the project area.
Evodia Australia has a rich Australian heritage that draws inspiration from our unique landscapes and native flora, so we have an intrinsic commitment to and respect for our environment. We are therefore very proud of our Low CO2 Certification* from the Carbon Reduction Institute – Australia’s most reliable and experienced carbon consulting company.
Evodia offsets 100 per cent of its operational emissions*
To achieve this important certification, we undertook a full audit of our operational carbon emissions. We now have an inventory of all our operational emissions, measured per tonne of carbon dioxide. This includes emissions from staff road and air travel, electricity and gas, waste and recycling, and all marketing collateral. Our carbon inventory allows us to clearly understand, reduce and offset our remaining emissions.
Evodia offsets every tonne of carbon emitted through our operations by purchasing carbon credits. These credits help fund wind and solar projects in China. The China Wind and China Solar Projects provide renewable, clean energy sources for power, significantly reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and the emission of harmful air pollutants.
Evodia Australia takes extensive measure to ensure our products, cartons, shipping boxes and marketing materials are recyclable wherever possible. We recognise that we have a responsibility to our environment and will continue to improve the sustainability of our packaging with the help of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation.
