In early 2021, Essence announce its carbon neutral certification under the Australian Governments Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard.

The certification recognises that Essence has chosen to measure, reduce, and offset its carbon emissions to lessen its negative impact on the environment.

In support of its broader sustainability goals Essence has elected to purchase and retire emissions offsets that:

  • Are generated by projects that reduce, remove or capture emissions from the atmosphere such as reforestation, renewable energy or energy efficiency
  • Deliver social, cultural, economic or environmental benefits in addition to reducing emissions
  • Support indigenous communities in protecting regionally and culturally important, biodiversity-rich lands and support sustainable livelihood opportunities
  • Support communities in developing localised renewable energy solutions, ecosystem protection and biodiversity enhancement
