Warrigal was recently the proud recipient of the Greenfleet Huon Award.
The Award was given in recognition of Warrigal's continued support of environmental charity Greenfleet.
“At Greenfleet, we are able to restore native ecosystems and tackle climate change thanks to the contributions of our amazing supporters, just like Warrigal” said Wayne Wescott, CEO of Greenfleet.
“Year after year, individuals and organisations help Greenfleet plant more native forests to offset their carbon emissions and it’s their continuous support which makes a huge difference to the environment,” added Wayne.
Greenfleet is an environmental not-for-profit organisation and Australia’s first and most trusted provider of reforestation carbon offsets.
Every year, Warrigal offsets the carbon emissions from its car fleet by planting native forests around Australia. To date our commitment has helped plant over 3,000 native trees in forests like ‘Battery Creek’, a tree planting project in South Gippsland, Victoria, which saw nearly 40 ha revegetated with a mix of over 95,000 native trees.
“At Warrigal we recognise that being environmentally responsible is at the heart of sustainability. Sustainability is a journey rather than a destination – we are proud to be taking this journey with Greenfleet through our long-term commitment to climate action,” said David Rogers, Property and Sustainability Manager at Warrigal
“We are thrilled to receive the Greenfleet Huon Award. By offsetting our emissions with Greenfleet, we are proud to help restore Australian landscapes by providing valuable habitat for native wildlife and transforming degraded land back to its natural state.”
