Helping companies get to grips with carbon tax

Home Engineering Chemical Helping companies get to grips with carbon tax

5INC, a specialist in carbon management and waste transformation, has announced the addition of training that assists companies to better understand and comply with the newly implemented Carbon Tax Act, expanding the focus and services of the company.

As part of their expansion, 5inc are also collaborating with other carbon strategists to bolster its expertise and experience, enabling clients to not only understand and comply with the Act but also reduce their tax liability by lowering company emissions.

“We previously focused on upcycling and the benefits thereof, which is the final stage of the carbon management process. Carbon management was always one of our offerings, but it was brought to the forefront when the Carbon Tax Bill was signed into law,” said Managing Director Yasmine Miemiec.

The company’s offering now includes analysing clients’ emissions and pollutions, and where they originate in order to establish its carbon footprint. By taking a closer look at organisations’ production processes in a number of industries including mining and manufacturing, 5inc develops sustainability strategies to reduce their negative impact on the environment.

5inc also provides carbon tax training, affording companies with the understanding of how the Carbon Tax Act works and how to change company behaviour in order to lower carbon emissions.

In addition to these new services, the company offers new waste management solutions as well as consultations on how to establish offsetting projects such as purchasing credit by investing in renewable energy, solar lighting or investing in initiatives that reduce pollution.

“Consumer are looking to support companies that have a lower impact on the environment and if businesses demonstrate that they are environmentally conscientious, it benefits them through an enhanced brand reputation,” said Miemiec.
