Carbon & Energy Management
To protect the Antarctic (and global) environment we have made a strong commitment to minimising energy demands to meet our sustainability objective. We do this by running Scott Base as a leading environmentally sustainable small research base in Antarctica by:
- Maximising the use of sealift and minimise airlift use for intercontinental logistics
- Using more renewable energy
- Reducing the amount of energy and materials we use
- Reducing or recycling our waste
Since the 2008/09 season, Antarctica New Zealand has met the requirements of the Certified Emissions Measurement and Reduction Scheme (CEMARS), a certification programme offered by Enviro-Mark Solutions has been certified as having measured its greenhouse gas emissions in compliance with ISO 14064-1 and committed to managing and reducing its emissions in respect of the operational activities of its organisation.
