Over 78,000 trees planted thanks to our novated leasing customers

Australia’s carbon emissions have been the focus of much debate recently. At Smartsalary, we take the environmental impact of car travel very seriously – especially given that novated car leases are amongst our most popular products.

We recognise that it is our responsibility to take action against that impact. For some time now, we’ve been partnered with not-for-profit organisation Greenfleet to help offset carbon emissions generated by vehicles leased through Smartsalary.

Our carbon offset program is called Purple meets Green. To all of our customers involved with the program, we’d like to say thank you – to date, your donations have allowed Greenfleet to allocate 78,866 trees to areas in need of regeneration around Australia.

How will these trees help the environment?

Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted almost 7 million native trees in Australia. Today, the resulting forests are helping to restore habitat for wildlife, reduce soil erosion and salinity, and improve water quality.

Below is an example of a Greenfleet biodiverse forest at Battery Creek, VIC.

Again, we send sincere thanks to our customers for their commitment to helping the environment, and hope many more trees are planted on your behalf.
