One of the most powerful things an organisation can do to slow climate change is to reduce commuting emissions.
CarbonWise easily measures and reports commuter emissions for your organisation.
“CarbonWise was able to capture the complexity for us, and could be customised to meet all our requirements. It provides an easy tool we can send out to our people to survey commuting behaviour.”
Leanne Hartshorne, Manager of Business Operations, Waka Kotahi
Toitū Envirocare, an emissions certification body in NZ, has conducted an independent audit of the CarbonWise methodology and the survey inputs. CarbonWise survey results have been verified as Toitū Carbon Compatible and can be treated as pre-verified data suitable for use in an ISO 14064-1:2018 compliant inventory, including a Toitū carbonreduce or Toitū net carbonzero certified inventory.

Commuting is a significant contributor to global warming, but most New Zealanders still rely on cars to travel to work.
New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions rose 26% between 1990 and 2019. Transport was the biggest contributor to this rise, with emissions from road transport growing 93%, and cars contributing 54% of those emissions. Reducing commuting by car can make a dent in many organisations’ emissions.
