Mount Warning Spring Water Carbon Reduction Institute

The Mount Warning Spring Water source flows deep below the base of Mount Warning, the remnant of an ancient volcano in the Tweed Valley, near Byron Bay on Australia’s East Coast. The Tweed Valley is famous for its unsurpassed beauty, pristine rainforests, lush green valleys, and geographical and cultural diversity.

Mount Warning Spring Water Company is a privately owned Australian family business with historical roots on the pristine property surrounding the source going back more than 100 years. The family’s story dates back four generations to 1904 when their early settler forefather selected the property, enticed to the region like many other settlers by glowing reports of rich soils, ample water and lavish growth. The region’s reputation was supported by red cedar and hoop pine, hauled out by the bullock teams of early timber-getters.

The many naturally occurring springs dotted throughout the property’s lush green hills were the reason the family’s pioneer forefather settled the land where today the Mount Warning Spring Water source is accessed. When his daughter had the water tested and analysed in the 1950s, it became evident the source was of extremely high quality. However, it was not until 2004 that the current generation, with the help of a well-known water diviner, realised the scale and quality of the underground aquifer. They established Mount Warning Spring Water Company and built a state-of-the-art bottling plant at the source.

From its inception, Mount Warning Spring Water has been committed to doing business in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner, in a bid to help preserve the natural heritage and environment of our region and planet.

Being a certified carbon neutral company means we remove as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as our company puts in, cancelling out all emissions created during the lifecycle of a bottle of Mount Warning Spring Water. We do this by purchasing “carbon offsets” which finances green energy projects like wind farms or solar parks and drives further investment into clean technologies.

Buying carbon offsets not only cancels out our carbon footprint, but it helps transform society to become more green and efficient. It helps make clean energy more affordable and helps reduce future greenhouse gas emissions to make up for our energy use today.
