- Greenfleet - Our Program
Climate change and global warming are among today's most pressing environmental issues, brought about by increased concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Transport is Australia's fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. Greenfleet is a non-profit organisation. Our program provides a simple way to reduce your car's impact on the environment. For $40 (tax deductible), Greenfleet will plant 17 native trees on your behalf. These trees will help to create a forest, and as they grow will absorb the greenhouse gases that your car produces in one year (based on 4.3 tonnes of CO2 for the average car*).
Greenfleet is a registered environmental charity working to reduce pollution and climate change. Avoid, reduce and finally offset greenhouse gas pollution from your car, gas, electricity and flights.

Note: Science shows that 17 mixed species trees will not only absorb a car's greenhouse emissions, but will also help to tackle salinity, improve water quality and provide essential habitat for native species.
Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted more than 2 million trees on behalf of Australian motorist ...mores and fleets. These forests will not be harvested and will create an investment in rural Australia for future generations.
