It’s everyone’s responsibility to care for the environment
and being involved in the automobile industry, we take this responsibility more seriously than most.
All of our energy is green, and when you lease a car with Autopia for the first time, we pay to offset your vehicle's emissions for the period of a year. We were the first car salary packaging company in Australia to do this.
Our carbon offset facility is enabled through our partnership with Greenfleet, a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on reducing the environmental impact of Australian transport.
How does it work?
It's simple! We pay for your car offset with Greenfleet, and 17 native trees* are planted on your behalf. These are planted on degraded land in rural Australia. To date, Autopia customers’ trees have been planted across nine different sites in New South Wales and Victoria.
Your trees help to create new forests and habitats for a host of native species. They help in the fight against salinity and erosion and capture CO2.
4.3 tonnes of CO2e will be absorbed in their lifetime - which is the same amount of CO2 produced by an average medium car in one year.
You’ll receive a year’s worth of offset complimentary from Autopia, and once this comes to an end, you have the chance to plant some more.
Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted more than 8 million trees on behalf of Australian individuals and organisations.
Autopia is proud to support such an organisation, and we hope you will be too.

"Climate change is one of the most pressing environmental issues facing businesses today. Greenfleet is delighted to work with Autopia to offset greenhouse gas emissions on behalf of their customers. This arrangement sees new forests being planted in priority areas to soak up greenhouse gas emissions, improve soil and water quality and provide vital habitat for native wildlife."
