SCT Consulting

SCT Consulting is a driven team of industry leaders in transport advisory services with experience across strategy, planning and delivery of transport products. Established in 2016, the consultancy has strengthened and grown to a strong team of over 18 professionals of transport planners and analysts, based in North Sydney.

Well-planned infrastructure and transportation systems are the foundation of safe, sustainable and liveable communities. At our core is the desire to create thoughtful transport solutions.

At SCT Consulting we take complex challenges and turn them into effective, smart and functional solutions. We work closely with you to unearth insights that transform places and communities – improving quality of life for all.

Embedded in our company ethos is an environmental awareness of how we operate and the impact of our designs on the sustainability of the community.  This is of utmost importance to us and that is why SCT Consulting have made the commitment to be Carbon Neutral.

As consultants with an accredited ISO14001 Environmental Management System and Carbon Neutral Certification, we are serious about upholding our commitment to environmental quality standards, by primarily changing our behaviours to reduce our overall carbon footprint by ensuring and measuring ourselves against the following targets and commitments:

  • Ensuring all our supply chains from our energy to our coffee are Carbon Neutral;
  • Minimise and recycle waste. Where possible, cut consumption of those products which generate high levels of greenhouse gases such as water, metal, paper, glass and plastic.
  • Seek to meet the target of 80% of travel to our office and site visits to be via public transport, active transport, or using car share scheme such as GoGet to reduce environmental impact and remove the need for use of a company car;
  • Offset any remaining emissions using verified and environmentally beneficial carbon offsets to maintain being carbon neutral;
  • Approach the planning and delivery of all our projects in a sustainable manner, through the consideration of minimising vehicular traffic impacts and implementing walking, cycling and other active transport initiatives, with the overall goal to provide a sustainable alternative means of travel for our community;
  • Promote and educate our clients on Green travel plans.

What does NoCO2 Certification mean?

By meeting the requirements of the NoCO2 Program, SCT Consulting is certified as a Carbon Neutral Business by CRI; can be promoted and marketed as such and can display the NoCO2 Logo issued by CRI. To achieve this status and become carbon neutral SCT Consulting undertook the following process:

  1. Commissioned a NoCO2 audit from CRI to measure their carbon footprint for FY2020. CRI’s NoCO2 audit follows the standards outlined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (1), in addition to the international standard ISO 14064.1 (2).
  2. Have committed to offset their unavoidable emissions through the purchase of units in approved projects under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Gold Standard, and
  3. Committed to ongoing annual auditing of their emissions.

What Carbon Credit Projects does SCT Consulting purchase offsets from?

As a practice, we see the importance of being sustainability-minded and we are reducing emissions from our operations where possible while compensating for the remaining emissions by investing in carbon offset projects.

India: Clean Energy Wind Project

Investments in clean energy sources, such as wind, are considered to be essential both in the interest of the environment and for public health reasons. Wind projects partially displace electricity currently generated from grid-connected conventional fossil fuel-based thermal power plants, while reducing emissions. Wind Projects reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and limit local air pollution, curtailing its negative health impacts. In addition to its environmental benefits, the implementation of the project creates job opportunities for local workers, contractors, and suppliers, while the operation and maintenance of the wind park generate long-term employment positions.
