Diesel fuel is known as a "fossil fuel" as it come from forrests and trees that have been fossilised over millions of years. Toyota 4WD engines run on diesel and carbon dioxide is released by the exhaust pipe as fumes or smoke. Trees and plants photosynthesis by using sunlight + water and sucking in carbon dioxide to create sugar so the tree can grow. Then the trees release oxygen, fresh clean oxygen. In plain English the trees clean the dirty exhaust fumes that come from running diesel engines.
Train Safe NT has the pleasure to announce carbon neutral 4wd courses, yes we are the first training company to deliver 4wd course that are carbon neutral and good for the environment. “We have purchased carbon credits”. As far as I know, Train Safe NT is the only 4wd registered training organisation (RTO) to offer carbon neutral 4WD courses in Australia. “I have purchased carbon credits to offset the diesel exhaust emissions so people can feel good about running big diesel engines during four wheel drive courses”. James Gorrie, four wheel drive trainer.
In plain English every time we start the car it burns diesel which releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that creates global warming, trees recycle carbon dioxide and convert the carbon into wood so by planting trees or preserving trees, the trees are are sucking up the carbon that the 4wd vehicles releases. Train Safe NT purchased the carbon offsets from Jawoyn Association who manage large tracts of bush land in the Northern Territory, the offsets are certified by the Australian government and meet the Kyoto emissions standards. Look at 4WD courses that are environmentally friendly
By making a financial contribution to Jawoyn Association, we are able to support the environment in the Northern Territory and this helps support Indigenous rangers that manage the bush land so this has a positive social outcome for all parties. "As a NT company I think it's our duty to be the first training company that is actually contributing to reducing emissions rather than adding to climate change, we need 4wd vehicles in the outback they are essential part of living in remote locations. So there is a way to make them better for the environment and its not that hard, just purchase carbon offsets from a certified organisation and you can feel good about the big diesel engine" James Gorrie, Director Train Safe NT.
During 4WD courses we may have five (5) vehicles running for 2 days so it was good to reduce our emission by offsetting against exhaust gases, the financial contribution helps “good fire management” with Jawoyn Association. I see this as the future “if all businesses offset their emissions this would help the world manage global warming, it was nice to feel good and play a small part in the big picture”.
If you are considering Nationally Recognised 4WD training for your staff, we can add our environment credentials to your workplace training. Carbon offset 4WD training
Voluntary cancellation of Australian Carbon Credits Units (ACCCUs) (Kyoto) as emission offset. (10 x units (tonnes CO2 -e).
Jawoyn Association has, on behalf of the buyer, voluntarily cancelled these Kyoto units in the ANREU under, part 6 of the Australia National Registry of Emissions units Act 2011. This cancellation is publicly recorded at www.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/ANREU/Data-and-information. Jawoyn Association is committed to excellent fire management of Jawoyn land to look after important places, biodiversity and provide livelihoods for Jawoyn communities. We are able to recognise carbon benefits of our project and certify them under the Australian governments carbon trading policy trading scheme.
