CEP is proud to be part of the Climate Leaders Coalition.

We have started recording our own emissions (using the e-Bench® software) and are targeting a reduction to net zero before 2030.

We’re investigating ways of carbon-streamlining our training delivery and have introduced a formal sustainability policy for our events and conference.

Last year, we included for the first time in our Annual Report a section on key sustainability measurables.

Our benchmark year for emissions was 2018 and gross emissions for that calendar year are reported as 55.62t CO2e.

Our gross emissions for the calendar year 2019 were down to 22.87t CO2e, materially attributable to reduced emissions associated with the conference where one of our Keynotes presented via video link. Emissions for the financial year being reported were 23.05t CO2e.

Our net emissions were:

26.62t CO2e for 2018 (Calendar year)

15.87t CO2e for 2019 (Calendar year)

16.05t CO2e for 2018/2019 financial year.

Both our 2018 and 2019 conferences were carboNZero certified.
