CEMARS is the first 2 steps of the carboNZero programme. It recognises the actions of businesses who measure their greenhouse gas emissions, understand their carbon liabilities, and put in place management plans to reduce emissions in their organisation and more widely through their supply chain.
CEMARS has been developed for businesses who are large emitters and for whom offsetting is not a viable business proposition or have not yet made the business case for carbon neutral status.
Whether or not you are captured under the Emissions Trading Scheme, smart businesses understand that in these challenging economic times effective carbon risk management will;
1 - help reduce operating costs
2 - add value to your organisation
3 - enable unrealised opportunities through certification that stands up to scrutiny
