Local meetups and events
If you’re ambitious, you’ll know goals are rarely achieved without commitment.
As a minimum, you will need to:
nominate a primary contact
measure your baseline emissions –scope 1 and 2 emissions (within 12 months)
take part in CitySwitch annual reporting to celebrate our collective efforts.
If you wish to be a CitySwitch leader, you will need to:
tackle all scopes of emissions
participate in a net zero accreditation framework such as Science Based Targets Initiative
help others in their net zero journey
Measuring carbon emissions
We provide guides to help you understand and calculate your business’s baseline emissions.
We don’t provide a comprehensive carbon account. There are a range of tools that can help you with your carbon accounting. And you can also hire a carbon accountant to ensure you adhere to the GreenHouse Gas Protocols.
A National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) energy tenancy rating will help you benchmark your office scope 1 and 2 emissions. As a CitySwitch signatory, you’ll receive a lodgement fee discount.
