Join us as we unfurl a new pathway to a sustainable future starting with our Travel, Conferences and Events.
212F Travel, Conferences and Events team will assess and design a sustainable program for the client.
KoruGreen Calculator will measure the impact of your domestic or international travel & event activity: across travel incentive programs, conferences and events.
Post event or travel, the 212F Group will offset 100% of your program by investing in projects that reduce emissions via the United Nations Carbon Offset Platform.
KoruGreen is 212F Group’s commitment to a harmonious and sustainable future. Just as ‘Koru’ in Māori symbolises new beginnings, the KoruGreen initiative will see the 212F Group bring to life a new vision and pathway to a better and sustainable future.
212F Group is made up of brands and operations of 212F Australia and New Zealand, 212F Labs, Incremental and iChoose Visa prepaid cards and our love for loyalty, incentives and rewards, combined with our passion for working towards a better future, has given birth to our new sustainability initiative, KoruGreen.
As the leading independent agency for B2B loyalty, incentive and reward programs in New Zealand and Australia, we have always moved the needle regarding new developments and offers in the marketplace. Taking that same view on sustainability, we wanted to authentically make a positive change in the world and raise the bar across the industry.
The Incentives, Rewards and Loyalty program industry is unique, and the tool kit for measuring our Green House Gas emissions (measured in tonnes of Carbon dioxide equivalent or Co2eq) is not accurate or does not measure all our program offerings.
Waiting for a solution is not an option; it’s time to act now!
We have partnered with Meegan Jones, an event sustainability professional focusing her efforts on using the power of events for positive action while also ensuring the events themselves are produced sustainably. Her consultancy Green Shoot Pacific provides advice, tools, systems support, training and practical solutions to the events and sports sectors.
Together, we have developed the industry’s first greenhouse gas (GHG) Calculator, KoruGreen Calculator. The calculator is unique to the loyalty and incentives industry and is the first of its kind specifically designed to estimate the impact of 212F Group’s highest emitting domestic & international activities – Travel Incentives, Conferences, and Events. The KoruGreen Calculator helps estimate greenhouse gas emissions based on the GHG Protocol corporate standard and offers the users a step-by-step process to estimate company emissions for specific programs or incentives on offer.
What makes the pledge so good is that across all our Travel Incentives, Conferences & Events, 212F Group will take complete responsibility for the unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions at zero cost to our clients. We will do this by investing in projects that reduce emissions via the United Nations Carbon Offset Platform.
We are the only Travel Incentive, Conference & Event provider in Australia and New Zealand & likely globally to provide a full carbon offset at our cost, and we are proud of it. We believe the KoruGreen Initiative will inspire other organisations to join us in the net zero journey.
We will also provide clients with guidance on reducing emissions in their program, an end-of-program report on CO2eq consumption and an annual sustainability report outlining details of the sustainability initiatives. We will also give our customers visibility of the UN climate action project expenditure and an internal operational sustainably audit.
“Our industry is unique, and the tool kit for measuring our Green House Gas emissions is not up to the task. Waiting for a solution is not an option; the KoruGreen Calculator utilises the world’s most widely used and accepted greenhouse gas accounting standards allowing us to assess the entire program’s emissions impact and identify where to focus reduction activities.”
Rob Morrow, 212F Group Managing Director
In addition to investing in climate action projects on behalf of our client programs, we will provide our clients with guidance on reducing emissions in their program, an end-of-program report on CO2eq consumption and an annual sustainability report outlining details of the sustainability initiatives.
For each travel incentive, conference, and events program, we will provide the following:
