Al Gore launches new  climate group in Docklands Image

Climate change celebrity crusader Al Gore rocked into Docklands for a whistlestop breakfast meeting on July 13.

He launched Safe Climate Australia in front of 1000 guests at Central Pier.

Safe Climate Australia is a non-government organisation formed and steered by a foundation group of concerned scientists, community and business leaders with a shared understanding of the scientific and moral imperatives for emergency action to restore a safe climate.

Doing its part to reduce emissions, Central Pier venue managers Atlantic Group [v] is a foundation sponsor of a carbon calculator designed especially for venue and events managers.

Atlantic marketing manager Sarah Seddon said the calculator software measured emissions based on venue size, number of participants and event timing.

“From this information, an estimation of each aspect of energy usage (for example lighting, heating and cooling, cooking and entertainment) is calculated,” Ms Seddon said.

“This information will allow event planners to calculate and offset the carbon emissions of an event held at our venue, making our venue more attractive on the environmentally sustainable front.”

Ms Seddon said Altantic was also part of Victorian Employers’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Grow me the Money program.

“Grow me the Money helps businesses save money by identifying where they can use fewer resources and generate less waste,” Ms Seddon said.

“The simple step-by-step 12 month program has helped us develop sustainable practices and enabled us to track our changing resource use,” she said.
