We want to do something good for our local communities, but we are also aware that climate change is an issue that must be addressed at a global level. This is why we support the highest quality carbon offsetting projects both in New Zealand and internationally.
The Everdale Human-Induced Regeneration carbon project promotes the regeneration of over 5,000 hectares of acacia woodland and eucalypt forest.
This project distributes improved cookstoves to around 25,600 families in rural Uganda. Most families are cooking on three stone fires which consume large amounts of firewood and cause air pollution.
The Flax Hills Forever Forests is a 69 hectare area that has been retired from grazing and is being reverted to native forest.
This program delivers solar water heaters to Indian communities and businesses, helping to avoid the burning of coal and providing cheap renewable energy for poor families.
Select how much do you drive each week and what type of car do you drive to calculate your driving carbon emissions and the cost to offset.
We’re on a mission at GO Rentals to make travel more sustainable in New Zealand for Kiwis and international visitors. As well as our fleet of zero emission electric vehicles, we are a Toitū certified business, plus we’re also integrating Tiaki across our business.
Achieving a Toitū certification involves a rigorous process of transforming your business operations to reduce carbon emissions, achieving carbon neutrality, and then eventually becoming climate positive. We are driven to measure and manage our carbon emissions and achieve our targets, whilst undergoing an annual recertification with Toitū.
The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, now and for future generations. We pledge to support the key pillars of the initiative and as a business, we are working to ensure we ‘care and protect’ our beautiful country, and take responsibility to educate and inform our customers. People are a core focus of what we do and enhancing their overall experience is essential, especially being a key gateway to NZ roads and destinations.
