Offset my office
The environmental impact of running buildings cannot be understated. That’s why Investa is proud to offer you the ability to offset your portion of carbon emissions associated with running the building. Just like offsetting your seat on a flight, offsetting allows your business to mitigate your corporate office’s impact on climate change.
Carbon offsets are generated from an activity that prevents, reduces or removes greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere, thus compensating for the emissions occurring elsewhere, in our case, at 16-18 Mort Street, Canberra. Offsetting your business emissions conveys a high impact, low cost message that your brand is taking strong action to reduce its environmental impact.
