In 2021 Discovery NZ & Australia met the requirements of Toitū CarbonReduce certification, having measured our ANZ organisations greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2018 and committed to managing and reducing our emissions in respect of our operational activities. Resulting in Discovery Australia & New Zealand becoming a Toitū carbonreduce certified organisation.

Initially developed for New Zealand business needs, Toitu programmes now serve more than 400 clients worldwide, is currently available in 17 countries and the certification marks are recognised in over 60 countries . 

Toitū CarbonReduce organisation certification is proof an organisation is positively contributing to the sustainability of our future through measuring and managing their carbon footprint. To achieve Toitū carbonreduce certification, an organisation must measure all operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions required under the international standard for carbon footprints, ISO 14064-1, including vehicles, business travel, fuel and electricity, paper, and waste. The emissions are measured annually, and the inventory is independently verified to ensure it is accurate and complete. The organisation must develop plans to continually manage and reduce their emissions. The organisation must reduce emissions on a six-year cycle
