Take a proactive step towards a cleaner, greener future with our Carbon Zero Scheme. It empowers you to offset the CO2 emissions associated with your Toshiba print devices by supporting projects that either save or absorb an equivalent amount of this greenhouse gas. By doing so, we can all target ‘Carbon Zero’ emissions, whilst gaining peace of mind that our workplaces are making a positive environmental impact.
The Carbon Zero Scheme is simple. Using the Life Cycle Assessment method (LCA), the total footprint of a Toshiba device from parts procurement, manufacture, transportation, energy usage and disposal is calculated. You have the option to offset this amount of CO2 through a small, single payment to gain a carbon neutral device upon delivery.
Climate action with Toshiba and Greenfleet
Through the Carbon Zero Scheme, we’re delighted to be a supporter of Greenfleet and their projects.
Greenfleet is Australia’s first carbon offset provider and has been delivering climate action in Australia and New Zealand for over 25 years. By restoring legally protected native forests, Greenfleet is removing carbon and providing habitat for native wildlife including koalas, which are considered endangered in Qld, NSW, and the ACT.
Since 1997, Greenfleet has restored 10.5 million native trees and created 550 legally protected native forests that will remove more than 4.4 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere across their lifetime.
Greenfleet’s expert Revegetation Team research, source, and plant species that are locally native to the area being revegetated to restore the forests that existed prior to the land being cleared.
Some examples of their existing projects include:
Restoring legally protected habitat for koalas and other wildlife through multiple revegetation projects in South Gippsland, Victoria. This work is delivering significant climate action by removing carbon, reducing erosion and improving the quality of soils and waterways.
Demonstrating how sustainable businesses and climate action can go hand in hand in Victoria’s Kinglake, Greenfleet restored native tree species to build potential habitat for species like the Greater Glider.
Extending habitat for a key population of healthy, breeding koalas in the Northern Rivers of NSW. Within just a few years of planting, this young forest saw koalas utilising the trees.
Restoring over 1,100 hectares of land to native forest in the Noosa Hinterland, with the Restoring over 1,100 hectares of land to native forest in the Noosa Hinterland, with the Kabi Kabi people. This project is helping to deliver reconciliation while growing habitat for the region’s endangered wildlife populations including koalas and quolls.
With your support via the Toshiba Carbon Zero Scheme, you will enable Greenfleet to restore even more native forests like the ones mentioned above. When you offset your Toshiba print device, Greenfleet will plant native trees in legally protected native forest to remove those emissions on your behalf.
Sustainable Development Goals
We’re very proud to be part of the bigger picture. The 2030 Agenda was presented by the UN in 2015 as a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It recognised that eradicating poverty is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development and encouraged all countries to work collaboratively to achieve this.
This is a hugely ambitious project and one we’re honoured to be a part of. The UNs 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include worldwide recognition of human rights, gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
With impacts that go beyond carbon offsetting, through our Carbon Zero Scheme, we’re working alongside other responsible companies and countries to help realise these goals. Through improving access to water, enabling income generation, encouraging responsible consumption of resources and much more, we aim to build a better future for everyone.
