Our Partners and Alliances

Our Partners

We partner with a number of organisations around the world to complement our core skills and allow us to deliver sustainability to a much wider population. Below are links to some of our key partnerships including:

Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), We partner with ACCA Australia and New Zealand to produce a research series which analyses disclosures on areas of non-financial performance by Australian Securities Exchange top 50 companies. Recent reports have included disclosures on water, social investment and corporate governance.

Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA), AusLSA is working collaboratively to promote sustainable practices across the legal sector. Net Balance is providing the secretariat for the Alliance. The AusLSA Project Manager is based at the Net Balance offices in Melbourne, and is able to draw on the knowledge, experience and resources of the whole of the Net Balance Group.

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Net Balance is an organisational stakeholder of the GRI, the world’s most widely-used sustainability reporting framework. Net Balance Director, Robyn Leeson, is also an elected member of the GRI’s Stakeholder Council.

Change2, Change2 specialises in the delivery of online cultural and behavioural education tools to assist organisations in the move to more sustainable business practices. The platform is a multi-award winning education and staff engagement tool that is used in a number of organisations. NetBalance provides subject matter expertise for Change2 content which covers a diverse range including energy efficiency, construction, carbon trading and staff engagement modules. Alongside this, Change2 also has a Change2 Network which is a free central resource on sustainability that brings together individuals, business, government and NGOs. (logo to come from Alan)

Greenhouse Gas Management Institute (GHGMI)

Based in Washington D.C., the GHGMI provides training on the principles, concepts and techniques required to manage and credibly account for GHG emissions. Net Balance is working with GHGMI to develop and deliver a series of accredited online training courses focusing on the Clean Energy legislative package. There are four courses – focusing on Australia’s carbon price mechanism, the Carbon Farming Initiative, the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme, and audit and verification requirements.
