As announced by NextFleet May 4 2022.
Riverina Australia is proud to be the first organisation onboarded to NextFleet’s new Carbon Offset Program, “greenDrive”.
NextFleet recently announced the Carbon Offset Program “greenDrive” in partnership with Australian Integrated Carbon (AIC) to offset all clients’ fleet emissions.
NextFleet, Australia’s most respected source of biodiverse carbon offsets, recently announced the establishment a Carbon Offset Program “greenDrive” in partnership with Australian Integrated Carbon (AIC), one of Australia’s leading nature-based carbon developers.
greenDrive enables clients to take climate action by offsetting the emissions from their vehicles managed by NextFleet.
The initiative is part of NextFleet’s path to ‘Accelerating Carbon Neutral’ which aims to drive meaningful climate action across internal and external activities as well as their clients’ fleets. NextFleet partnered with AIC, which identified Australia’s expansive landscapes as offering significant potential to generate quality Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs).
“With road transport in Australia the third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, we wanted to accelerate climate action and help our clients to take immediate action,” says NextFleet’s Managing Director and Board Member, Akira Odagaki.
NextFleet's valued client, Riverina Australia, a premier supplier of stock feed for the agriculture industry, was the first to be onboarded with the “greenDrive” Carbon Offset product for their fleet.
Riverina's Managing Director David Hunter says,
“Climate action has never been more prevalent and pertinent for our industry, and with months of talks around reducing greenhouse gas emissions we have been continuously assessing our options to take climate action.”
“When NextFleet came to us with a genuine solution for our fleet, we were delighted to be the first client to get on board. We have now offset our fleet emissions for any new vehicles with NextFleet leasing arrangement and proud to have done so with Australian Integrated Carbon (AIC),” said Hunter.
The Carbon Offset product enables NextFleet clients like Riverina Australia to reduce their fleet vehicles’ impact on the environment through Carbon Credits and Carbon Offsets, which enables clients to compensate for carbon dioxide (or other greenhouse gases) being emitted and to help towards their climate action journey.
NextFleet’s Giulio Persichilli explains “As a NextFleet client, you will automatically be entitled to the annual Carbon Offset offering. This means you will be offsetting your vehicle’s environmental impact each year a vehicle is leased with NextFleet. Carbon Offsets will be provided with AIC and Greenfleet.”
CEO of AIC Adam Townley says “We are excited to be working in partnership with NextFleet, deploying our environmental and financial expertise to help them and their clients’ transition to a low-carbon society.”
