Buy A Tree for $4 | Thredbo’s Matching Donations!
Buy a tree for $4 to offset your trip to the snow this season. Better yet, from 19 – 25 July during Thredbo Environment Week we’ll match your donation! Since 2014, Thredbo guests have offset nearly 8,000 tonnes of carbon emissions by planting over 30,000 trees.
At Thredbo, we have harnessed the opportunity to lead our industry and our community toward a more sustainable future, today. Together with Red Energy and Snowy Hydro, we’re proud to be powering all our major resort operations with clean and renewable sources of energy, effective 1 July 2019. This is a positive addition to the long list of environmental initiatives that Thredbo takes pride in.
What You Can Do!
- Reduce & Reuse
- Reduce the need for single-use items.
- Bring a re-usable bag, a re-usable water bottle and re-usable coffee cup.
- Recycle and Buy Recycle
- Re-direct recyclable items away from landfill.
- Be A Conscious Consumer
- Try to avoid buying brand new gear each season. Check out the Op Shop!
- Try mending broken items rather than getting rid of them.
- Travel Smart to Reduce Your Emissions
- Buy a tree through Greenfleet for $4, offsetting your CO2 emissions from travel.
- Carpool on your journey, therefore sharing emissions between a number of people.
- Turn It Off!
- Turn lights and appliances off at the wall.
- Try putting the heating on a timer and make sure your home is suitably insulated for the winter.
- Food Waste
- Try to eat locally grown food and seasonal produce to reduce the carbon footprint of your plate.
Since 2009 Thredbo has partnered with Greenfleet to offset resort vehicle emissions including all fuel used to run our Snow Groomers and the resort shuttle buses. In total we have offset nearly 11,927 tonnes of carbon emissions by planting over 44,000 native trees.
On top of this, in a global first in 2014, Thredbo started a forestry carbon offset program for guests enabling them to purchase a tree for $4.00 when buying lift products. During the 2019 Winter season over 1,000 trees were purchased by guests to offset their drive to the snow.
Keep it Cool
Keep it Cool is a local not-for-profit organisation committed to restoring and regenerating forest areas around the Snowy Mountains in order to fight climate change. Together, we plant native trees to offset carbon emissions.
Protect Our Winters
POW turns passionate outdoor people into effective climate advocates. We lead a community of athletes, thought pioneers and forward-thinking business leaders to affect systemic political solutions to climate change.
Thredbo is proud to be awarded Gold EarthCheck Certification in 2021! This internationally recognised environmental milestone is a first for an Australian ski resort and is awarded by EarthCheck, the world’s leading environmental certification and benchmarking program for the travel and tourism industry.
