How is your day looking up?
This Spotted Gum was planted in 2002 in one of our ‪#‎GreenfleetForests‬ in Newcastle, NSW, to restore native bush and offset carbon emissions.

This Honey bee is busy collecting pollen of a Swamp Tea Tree's flowers in one of our ‪#‎GreenfleetForests‬.

In 2007, Greenfleet teamed up with Ipswich City Council to transform grazing paddocks along Purga Creek into native bushland for the community to enjoy. We planted 90,000 native trees which turned the area into a fauna and flora sanctuary.

Remember the native forest we seeded in June last year near Kara Kara National Park, Victoria? In just three months, we spotted the first germination. So special to witness a forest in the making!

Happy World Wetlands Day 2016! Wetlands are a critical part of our natural environment, and we're proud to have helped restore & protect a number of wetlands through our reforestation projects.

One of them is Baxters Wetland Reserve (in Wonthaggi, Vic), which we revegetated between 2005 and 2011 with 33,000 native trees and shrubs (like Coastal Wattles, Woolly Tea Trees & Coastal Manna Gums). Nowadays the Reserve is thriving. The forest is protecting the lake & marshes, acting as a carbon sink and providing excellent habitat for the bird population. If you're a keen bird-watcher, it's a great place to visit with bird hides dotting around the park.

Great to see The Diggers Club's latest Summer catalogue featuring +Greenfleet's  'offset your delivery' option, for only 50 cents!

The Diggers Club have been supporting +Greenfleet since 2007, planting more than 1,600 trees as a result.

If your organisation is interested in giving back to the environment and taking real climate action, please email: greta.korthaus@greenfleet.com.au to find out more.

+Greenfleet  is reforesting this site owned by Peter and Bill Wood on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria next year.

+Greenfleet aims to increase the biodiversity of the region and improve habitat and wildlife corridors for local koalas and other native animals. We are very excited to be restoring Australia's most iconic road!

These before and after satellite images demonstrate the striking impact our reforestation work has in the Kamarooka State Park, Victoria.

This revegetation project is absolutely sensational! Located within the Greater Bendigo National Park, the State Park is regarded as one of the most important conservation areas in Victoria. Of the 360 different plant species have been recorded in the park, 19 are listed as rare or threatened in Victoria. Over 170 different species of bird are recorded within the park and five of them are listed as rare or threatened along with four species of mammal and reptile.

Between 2007 and 2011, we worked with Parks Victoria to revegetate this bare patch. After a rough start, the forest is now growing well and is extending wildlife habitat as well as preserving the rare flora and fauna species from the region.

This is another stunning example of the impact our supporters' ‪#‎carbonoffset‬ donations have on the ground. THIS, right there, is what we call real and tangible climate action. So spread the word and share this post so that more and more Australians join us to offset their carbon emissions and restore our landscape: www.greenfleet.com.au/offset

This is what native #reforestation looks like. And this is what our supporters' donations achieve on the ground: the restoration of healthy, biodiverse #forests.

Back in 2008, we planted trees on this piece of land to transform a former grazing farm into the beautiful wetland reserve it is today near Wyong, NSW.

This project is of particular significance for #biodiversity conservation as many vegetation communities that exist on this site are identified as Endangered Ecological Communities under the Threatened Species Conservation (TSC) Act (1995). The 4,000 native trees we planted are helping to restore, protect and conserve these ecosystems; they're also removing carbon pollution from the air and improving water quality in the wetlands, which acts as a storage and filter basin for urban stormwater prior to entering Tuggerah Lake.

Check out these before and after photos.

In 2010, Greenfleet assisted Parks Victoria with a bushfire recovery project in Kinglake National Park following the devastating bushfires in 2009. This native reforestation project aimed at creating a habitat link (or corridor) between Kinglake National and Warrandyte State Park to help threatened species, such as the Brush Tailed Phascogale, which were affected by the fires to travel back into the National Park.

A binding agreement to minimise carbon emissions to below two degrees Celsius ushers in a new era. And with this new climate pact in place, Australia will need to ramp up its efforts to reduce emissions, says +Greenfleet's  Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Wescott.

Wescott, who was in Paris to meet with Australian political leaders during the COP21 climate summit, says many untold stories of climate action are already found around Australia.

Making your mark is about doing something that is bigger than yourself. Disney have been planting trees and making a mark with +Greenfleet for 18 years.

To celebrate the release of +Disney Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, in cinemas Boxing day, Disney will engage us to plant 1 of 2000 on your behalf for every handprint uploaded to Instagram tagging @DisneyAUNZ and ‪#‎MakeYourMark‬.. Tell us how you have made your mark on the world around you!

Greenfleet is a not-for-profit organisation connecting people with real climate action.
Introduction
Greenfleet exists to make a difference, not a profit

Greenfleet is Australia's most respected source of biodiverse carbon offsets.

As an environmental not-for-profit organisation, our mission is to protect our climate by restoring our forests. We plant Australian native forests to offset carbon emissions on behalf of thousands of individuals, businesses, NGOs, councils and universities.

Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted over 8.5 million native trees in more than 400 biodiverse forests around Australia.

Our philosophy for tackling climate change involves three key phases:

  1. Avoid creating emissions wherever possible
  2. Reduce the rate at which you do create emissions
  3. Offset any emissions created by recapturing CO2 from the atmosphere
