Our Operations are Carbon Neutral!
Bendigo Marketplace’s operations are now officially carbon neutral!
Alongside 90 other ISPT properties, Bendigo Marketplace has taken immediate action on climate change by having our operations certified carbon neutral by Climate Active.
The project, which procures 100% Australian Carbon Credit Offset Units (ACCUs), with a focus on offsetting programs connected to Indigenous communities, incorporates all of Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre’s communal areas and the electricity used to power air conditioning, lights, lifts & escalators.
As Australia’s largest local offsetting project, our offsets are purchased from 12 community-based projects. The projects have a dual benefit of protecting and regenerating native land to restore habitats for plants and animals, while also driving positive economic outcomes for Indigenous owned-businesses and communities.
This milestone has also been accomplished by ISPT’s management of climate risks in its portfolio and operations, including Bendigo Marketplace. This comprises of energy efficiency, onsite renewables, offsite renewables through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), and then by offsetting the remainder of emissions with ACCUs.
