Carbon Neutral

From financial year ending 31/03/2023, Moneyworks has been working to be carbon neutral.  Although we are a service business, and don't have to worry about boilers and plants belching out Greenhouse Gases, we have signed up to offset all of our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions through CarbonTrail.

The identified emissions in our business are either offset at source, or by planting native forests in New Zealand.  Through the CarbonTrail system we offset our emission with, which enables us to identify exactly where our native trees are planted.

We are also moving our business to dealing with Ecotricity as a power provider, which is a carbon positive electricity producer.

We have been working with Peter for over 15 years and were (wrongly) concerned that he would dictate what we did with our money.  We make our own decisions.

Peter treats us like genuine friends, not as clients.  His manner is easy and personable and we have had consistently good returns on our investments.

We absolutely trust that Peter will only do the very best with our money and not take unnecessary risks.
