In January we started moving towards becoming a carbon neutral business by changing to 100% green power, and engaging our friends at Dsquared to help us work towards lowering our carbon impact, and achieving carbon neutral certification under the Australian Government backed Climate Active programme.
“Like many of you we have been shocked by the severity of this summer’s bushfire crisis. Personally I am more and more concerned about the ongoing impact of climate change including on our own lives or people we know, and places we love. Not knowing what to do about it just adds to the worry,” said Michael.
“Making our business carbon neutral is something positive that we can do. It’s something many of our peers are working on too, and the Architects Declare and Engineers Declare movements show how many in our industry want to take action on climate change. We are at the point where we all have to show leadership and take action now.”
Jensen PLUS is a strong supporter of the Planning Institute of Australia and Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, and we note that PIA has declared a climate emergency saying “communities need help to ensure their aspirations for meaningful climate change adaption and mitigation strategies are met”. This is something we are ready to do.
