Contributing to the environment
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 that provides a simple service to help reduce your impact on the environment. Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted over 7 million trees in an effort to offset the carbon emissions produced by Australians. VALA2012 invites you to make a tax-deductible donation to Greenfleet via their website www.greenfleet.com.au.
