Greenfleet will plant a variety of native trees on the company’s behalf

After first signing on with Greenfleet in 2021 to offset emissions generated by company and employee vehicles, Bendix is again supporting the program in 2023.
To offset the estimated 731 tonnes of CO2 produced by Bendix’s vehicle fleet, Greenfleet will plant a variety of native trees on the company’s behalf both in Australia and New Zealand.
The offset is calculated Using the Full Carbon Accounting Model (FullCAM), developed by CSIRO and approved by the then Australian Department of the Environment, with the organisation ensuring the carbon uptake of each forest at each planting site.
The plantings will consist of a range of trees including locally adaptive species in any site to ensure resilient forests will thrive and flourish. After any planting, regular checks are made especially during the establishment phase to check on the health and growth rate of the trees.
Aside from providing emission capture benefits, the program supports Greenfleet in restoring native forests and ecosystems, which provide crucial habitat for endangered wildlife and help counter the devastating impact of bushifres, which have been particularly prevalent in recent years, particularly in Australia.
Greenfleet forests are legally protected on-title for up to 100 years from land clearing, harvesting and construction, even if the land is sold. In cases of natural disaster such as fire, floods and drought, or damage from browsing animals or pests, the trees are replaced or planted in another area.
FMP Group (Australia) Pty Ltd General manager, George Kyriakopoulos, said Bendix and its employees were extremely pleased to be continuing its association with Greenfleet.
“As a manufacturer and distributor of braking components, Bendix strives to minimise its environmental impact across all areas of operations,” George said.
“Partnering with a reputable organisation such as Greenfleet allows our company to meet certain sustainability goals while complementing the broader environmental initiatives we directly have in play, including in our manufacturing processes and product packaging.
“Among the initiatives, we’ve already eliminated plastic shrink and bubble wrap from our EV-Hybrid Disc Brake Pad range in favour of 100 percent recyclable Hexcel Wrap and are also rolling out FSC Certified exterior packaging across our broader range.”
