Energy Efficiency Description:

The Carbon Neutral Program provided a voluntary certification process for organisations that have carbon neutral products or operations under the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS). This program commenced on 1 July 2010 and replaces the 'Australian Government's Greenhouse Friendly™ initiative (2001 to 2010).  

Climate Change Description:

The Carbon Neutral Program is a voluntary scheme which certifies products, business operations or events as carbon neutral against the Australian Government's National Carbon Offset Standard (the Standard). This Standard provides integrity through its guidance on genuine voluntary offsets and its minimum requirements for calculating, auditing and offsetting a carbon footprint to achieve carbon neutrality.
