Carbon Neutral Advantage will bring business and community together throughout Southland to equip our economy for a low emission future. This initiative will help businesses respond to the challenge of climate change and carbon trading by accelerating the uptake of new technology and offsetting opportunities.
The project is being coordinated by Venture Southland who will work alongside the local steering group, Southland businesses, councils, and the wider community to support the adoption of low emission technologies and techniques in the Southland region.
The project is being funded by the Ministry for the Environment and the Tindall Foundation and will help create a competitive advantage and healthy environment for current and future generations.
