Climate Action HB: Workshop 1

“Getting started – understand how to measure and monitor your carbon emissions”


We all know we can make changes that will help mitigate the impact of human accelerated climate change, but where to start?  What to tackle first?  What will have the biggest impact? And how does it add value to your business?

Understanding where your emissions come from and what produces the most carbon is a great place to start your climate action – you can then focus your reduction efforts where it will have the most impact.

Workshop details

The workshop will cover:

  • Building the business case – why take action?
  • Why measure and monitor your emissions?
  • Options for measuring – DIY or third party certification?
  • Defining your emissions – 3R’s experience
  • Science-based targets – what are they?
  • Offsetting with carbon credits – what are they and should you buy them?
  • Reporting – what to report and why?

Workshops are limited to 15 people per session, so don’t miss out.

Where: Conference Room, HB Business Hub, 36 Bridge Street, Ahuriri, Napier

When:  9am – 12pm.  A third workshop may be held if there is sufficient interest.

Cost: $350 per person Koha

In light of the current financial situation resulting from COVID-19, we have decided to offer the workshops on a donation basis – pay what your business can afford – $20 or $200, it’s up to you.  A koha form will be available at the workshop for you to complete and we will invoice that amount.



3R’s purpose is to combine imagination and science to repurpose waste.  This is achieved by designing great product stewardship programmes that accelerate the circular economy.  We help businesses and individuals take action towards greater environmental sustainability through providing practical solutions and advice, plus opportunities to network and learn.  3R is a Toitū carbonzero certified business, a founding signatory to the Climate Leaders Coalition, and are happy to share their experiences to help others.

Adele Rose, Chief Executive, has helped a wide variety of companies and industries to improve their environmental sustainability through product stewardship, waste reduction and resource recovery. She attended Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Brisbane in 2019.

Toitū Envirocare believes that together we can build momentum, inspire change and take credible action toward a sustainable world. Based on science and backed by proof, our Toitū carbonreduce® and Toitū carbonzeroCertTM programmes were the world’s first to be internationally accredited under ISO 14065.  Our programmes give organisations the tools they need to reduce their carbon emissions and environmental impact, and be recognised for it.

Kate Ellingham, Technical Account Manager, guides Toitū members on their on-going journey through our certification programmes – she hopes to positively challenge them for continuous environmental improvement.
