Our commitment to 

 sustability & carbon neutral 

We recognise a clear imperative to reduce our emissions and promote sustainability. However, we are also very aware that the learning experience offered by face-to-face interaction is significantly richer for many students. It enables access to more information and a richer understanding through the teacher's and other student's body language and voice. Participants also have the important opportunity to connect with, problem-solve, and network with other students from a wide range of backgrounds.

Carbon emissions from travel are therefore an unavoidable part of our programme. These emissions will be offset using a credible and reputable carbon offset operator.

We acknowledge not all carbon offsetting programmes are equal and, in some instances, can have minimal to no meaningful impact on removing carbon from the atmosphere. However, carbon offsetting is currently the only viable option for RRANZ to become and remain carbon-neutral while carrying out its core business.

To ensure a meaningful impact in removing carbon as best as practicable, RRANZ purchases carbon credits to offset unavoidable emissions. We currently use Toitū Envirocare to purchase carbon credits. Toitū is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research (a New Zealand Government-owned Crown Research Institute).
