There are five simple stages to reducing emissions:

Core Stages (mandatory for recognition):

  1. Commit: Make a start by estimating your carbon emissions.
  2. Reduce: Adjust your operations and start minimising emissions, straight away!
  3. Avoid: using carbon-producing technologies and processes to get your energy.
  4. Support: Sponsor projects that cut emissions you can’t stop making.
  5. Sustain: Keep going! Maintain your progress in the medium and long term.

  • Reporting: The program offers the ability to estimate your business’ emissions and be able to communicate your emissions reduction plan to visitors, partners and more via QR Code and unique link to your plan.
  • Efficient and Effective: The program is designed to be time efficient
  • Exclusive Support: Benefit from monthly webinars and one-on-one sessions with a dedicated TERC Tourism Sustainability Manager.

“I managed to get my plan done in a couple of hours” – Owner, Mic Guiliani at Sirocco South

“Completing the ERC Action Plan was not a resource-intensive process – it included actions we have already taken, options we were considering, and suggested actions of which we weren’t aware of. It allowed us to set realistic, manageable and flexible goals for emissions reduction”, – Owner, Kylie Quilliam at Laid Back Manor.
