We’re here to help you achieve your sustainability story. We give organisations the tools, actions and evidence needed to make measurable progress– and be recognised for it.
Toitū carbonreduce and Toitū carbonzero certification
We offer carbon management and carbon neutral certifications for organisations, goods and services, farms and building operations, including all the tools you need to measure, reduce and offset greenhouse gas emissions, through our Toitū carbonreduce and Toitū carbonzero Programmes – learn more here. These certifications were previously known as CEMARS and carboNZero respectively.
Toitū enviromark certification
We offer a three-tiered environmental management system. Our Toitū enviromark programme helps members to develop, review and improve a custom system to manage environmental aspects and impacts, including legislative and health & safety requirements, through our Toitū enviromark Programme – learn more here. This certification was previously known as Enviro-Mark.

Setting science-based targets
Toitū Envirocare provides custom support to help organisations set and achieve science-based emissions reduction targets. We are the first CDP-accredited science-based targets partner in Australia and New Zealand.
Whether your organisation is starting from scratch or needs its work verified, we can help.
Why set a science-based target?
A science-based target is an emissions reduction goal set in line with the global carbon budget.
This budget caps global carbon emissions at one trillion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e), which gives us the best chance of limiting global warming to less than 2°C.
Using science-based target principles allows organisations of any size or sector to take their part in a fair transition to the global low carbon economy.
Toitū Envirocare welcomes any organisation that wants to set science-based targets to start the conversation today. Together we can develop a custom plan to apply our expertise to your business needs. Learn more about setting a science-based target here.
