Offsetting To Protect Central Victorian Ecosystems

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank offsets its carbon emissions from necessary travel by partnering with the not-forprofit carbon offset provider, Greenfleet. Since our partnership began in 2014, more than 113,500 trees have been planted across Australia and other parts of the world.

This includes a revegetation project at an innovative climate-ready site at Nardoo Hills Reserve in Central Victoria.

Spanning 1,200 hectares, the project is designed to protect and restore temperate woodlands – the most threatened wooded ecosystem in Australia – and contribute to climate change resilience.

In total, 9,000 native seedlings were planted in 2019 and a further 2,700 in 2020.

This is an effective way for businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment. We encourage more local businesses to consider carbon offsetting as part of their broader strategy.

We honour Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom has ensured the continuation of culture and traditional practices. We are committed to enabling self-determination for all Aboriginal people and aim to work closely with the Aboriginal community to drive action and improve outcomes especially in the context of a changing climate.
