With_ first Architectural practice in Australia certified Carbon Neutral

With_Architecture Studio has broken new ground for the architecture profession by becoming the first practice in Australia to be certified carbon neutral after a three year process. The certification occurs under the National Carbon Offset Standard, which is a rigorous and transparent framework supported by international standards, tailored to an Australian context. The overarching Carbon Neutral Program certifies organisations, products and services as carbon neutral against the Standard. To be carbon neutral, an organisation must measure emissions, reduce these where possible, offset remaining emissions and report on their carbon neutrality.

With_Architecture began to monitor its resource consumption in 2014, tracking improvements and aiming to become Carbon Neutral in 2017. All parts of the practice’s operations are included in the Carbon Neutral Certification, and are in accordance with the following standards:

– National Carbon Offset Standard v3.0 – The Greenhouse Gas Protocol: A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (Revised Edition) – National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008
