Copperhead Sandalwood has been awarded a Climate Active Organization certification for its carbon-neutral business operations, making it the first Indian sandalwood supplier in Australia to be recognized with that award.

To offset its emissions from business operations, Copperhead has invested in two carbon offset projects – the Moolakar Human-Induced Regeneration Project and the Merepah Fire Project.

Climate Active is a government-backed program in Australia that enables businesses to measure, reduce and legitimately offset carbon emissions. They provide the most rigorous certification available, helping businesses to measure their emissions, reduce these where possible and then offset the remains. Businesses are held accountable to set goals to continue to reduce their emissions in the future.

Samudra Sarubin, Copperhead's chief operating officer said, "We are not strangers to growing trees, but, as part of our sustainability commitment, it was important for us to accurately measure, evaluate and offset the carbon emissions associated with running our operations. Climate Active is a leader in the realm of carbon-neutral certification, and, with certification from this program, we hope to do our best by the planet and community and give our customers peace of mind that our operations are as environmentally friendly as possible."
