When we’re raising CarbonInvoice, >50% of clients are coming back and commenting about how awesome this is, so we’ve definitely got what we want out of this from the marketing perspective, above and beyond the environmental impact.

A robust emissions measurement model based on real data 
Measurment model

All Positive Business badge-holders have completed the measurement of their business emissions through CarbonInvoice’s multi-layered categorisation and calculation approach.

To calculate a business's total carbon intensity, CarbonInvoice uses official location specific Industry Standard Emissions Factors and analyses a business’s accounting data into carbon categories, in alignment with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory.

CarbonInvoice then apportions a business’ carbon intensity on a per-invoice basis in order to mitigate the intensity at the invoice level.

In order to keep this calculation up to date and automatically mitigate emissions at the invoice level, CarbonInvoice maintains a connection to the business accounting ledger.

In the first five months since we've partnered with CarbonInvoice™ we've contributed to planting 50 native trees, removing the emissions from our recruitment services. We are thrilled with our progress so far and remain committed to pursuing this important work alongside our clients and contractors.

Positive Business badge-holders are committed to taking tangible action with every invoice, ensuring that they're making a difference.

CarbonInvoice works with trusted and credible partners in the climate space. We have partnered with Trees That Count for the funding of native tree planting to enable the mitigation of a business carbon footprint over 50 years from planting.


Planting trees is a tangible and robust carbon removal mechanism, which we and our customers strongly believe in, specifically native trees. Moreover, by supporting native tree planting, Positive Businesses not only reduce their carbon footprint but help strengthen biodiversity and support communities to thrive.

CarbonInvoice is really easy to understand, and the way they measure and mitigate our footprint is credible and simple. It’s great to be able to use this as evidence of our sustainability journey with our Government, Banking and Telco customers and know we are playing our part.
