The ERC Protocol is trusted by Industry Associations and SMEs


Why is the ERC Protocol so affordable?

Our pricing and program is designed to: 

  1. Promote broadscale participation and build habits in actions that reduce emissions. This achieves impact. 
  2. Direct limited resources to action, not administration. 

We want you to invest in positive change, not in program fees.

"It was all so simple and exactly what we needed and wanted as an eco-conscious small business keen to do better! It made us realise how much we were already doing to actively reduce our carbon emissions and gave us heaps of practical ideas on how we can further reduce them. Even small changes make such a difference!"

- Director/Owner, Zoe Exton at Tasmanian Mountain Bike

"We ran into a few issues due to the way our organisation works which is slightly different, as well as our offices being rented in a heritage building - however the ERC team has been super helpful in working through it all! Also, the way the action plan set-up is laid out looks amazing!"

- Office and Ticketing Manager, Linda Morrow, Festival of Voice

"Overall, I found it very intuitive. As someone who isn't experienced in technical reporting, I felt able to manage the process, without being overwhelmed."

- Coordinator, Joanna Gair at Bass Strait Maritime Centre

“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. It allowed us to set realistic, manageable and flexible goals for emissions reduction,"

- Owner, Kylie Quilliam at Laid Black Manor
