Industry Association Testimonial

See the difference we make through the eyes of our trusted clients. 

Our testimonial section is filled with inspiring stories of successful Industry Associations rolling out our program to their members. 

Discover how we're changing the game together!


When we came across ERC – a Tassie-owned & operated solution – it ticked all the boxes for us. Our members tell us they love how easy it is to progress through the self-guided program, with many having made it to the advanced stage within the space of a single afternoon.

As an industry body with active members on the ERC platform, we find it incredibly easy to oversee their progress and we can pull large amounts of usable data & reports from the system in just the click of a button. The ERC team has also been incredibly receptive to our feedback and requests for customised solutions.

ERC is a great solution if you are seeking to connect industry members to a program that sets them on a path towards carbon neutrality and beyond.

Key Benefits for Corporates


Who can join the ERC Protocol program?

Any micro, small, or medium-sized business in Australia looking to reduce its carbon footprint can join our program. No matter your industry or current level of carbon awareness, we're here to guide you.

Our program also tailors for Industry Associations and Large Corporates that are either looking to activate an Emissions Reduction Program that can be rolled out across their members or looking to comply with procurement standards.

Is this program suitable for businesses of any size?

Absolutely! Whether you're a solo entrepreneur or a growing SME, our program is designed to be flexible and accommodating to businesses of all sizes.

Do I need any prior knowledge about carbon reduction to participate?

Not at all! Our program is tailored to help businesses at any stage of their carbon reduction journey, even if you're just starting out.

How can ERC Australia help my business in the journey towards carbon neutrality?

We provide a five-stage program, guiding you from initial assessment to achieving measurable carbon reduction. Our cloud-based system simplifies the process, making 'going carbon-free' easy and achievable.

I have calculated my emissions with another service, can I still join the ERC Protocol?

Yes! You can input your emissions into our platform to help you develop and communicate an Emissions Reduction Plan to reduce your emissions. You can also use the ERC Protocol to link your plan to industry associations you are part of or larger corporations.
