To this end, for our mobile vet services in Hobart Creature Calls uses an electric vehicle to minimise our carbon emissions: the Nissan Leaf.
The vehicle is charged sometimes by the solar panels on Dr Cathy’s house and at other times by mains power. Thankfully, living in Tasmania, we run on primarily hydro power so much of our electricity is from renewable sources even when not from solar panels.
We email invoices and handouts rather than printing out hard copies, thereby reducing the need for tree harvesting for wood chipping to create paper.
We choose to bank through “Bank Australia”: a carbon neutral bank that doesn’t support the fossil fuel industry.
Our super is invested with “Australian ethical investment”, whose charter avoids investment in: any funds that extract, create, produce, manufacture, or market materials, products, goods or services which have a harmful effect on humans, non-human animals or the environment.
We believe that by following these policies and investing in these companies we are not only doing our bit to try to reduce emissions but also to create a healthier and fairer world.
