Through our Native Pathways Project, StreetFleet has surrendered 100 tonnes of carbon emissions through the purchase of Australian Native Reforestation with Carbon Neutral. We are working with Carbon Neutral to measure, reduce and offset carbon emissions to invest in the future of the sustainability of our planet.
What does this mean?
Carbon Neutral currently estimate 15 trees per tonne of carbon emissions. StreetFleet have effectively purchased 1500 trees which will assist to filter the carbon in the atmosphere. These trees are part of the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor in Southwest Australia which is a global bioversity hotspot. This aims to remove existing carbon from the atmosphere to restore a healthy, functioning landscape.
What is Carbon Offset?
Carbon offsetting is a market-based mechanism and is typically transacted in metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e). Purchasing one tonne of carbon offset means there will be one less tonne of carbon dioxide (or an equivalent greenhouse gas) in the atmosphere than there otherwise would have been.
What can I do?
StreetFleet Clients will now be able to nominate to contribute through their monthly lease commitments. This small contribution will be added in your monthly payment contributions at your request.
Action: To add Carbon Offset Contributions to new and current leases, please contact your fleet consultant to activate on Ph: 1300 273 359 or email email@example.com
How is this calculated: Contributions will be based on type of car, fuel economy, km/s per year, fuel type & usage. The price per carbon tonne is then calculated based on this information
How is this then passed to Carbon Neutral : The Carbon Offset Contributions are then used to purchase ongoing metric tonnes of carbon offset to enable more trees to be planted and continue to support the future of our planet.

Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen while cleaning the air we breathe, they filter the water we drink and provide habitat to over 80% of the word’s biodiversity
