Leading Australian portal operator REA Group has been declared a climate-neutral organization after the Melbourne based company completed the Climate Active certification for its 2020 carbon footprint. The certificate is awarded by an Australian government-backed organization that encourages companies and society in general to reduce emissions and increase sustainability. Companies such as REA Group that wholly offset their carbon footprint are awarded carbon-neutral certification.

Speaking about an issue on which he beleives businesses can be leaders in society, REA Group CEO Owen Wilson said: "As an organisation we are taking action to reduce and offset as much carbon from the atmosphere as we are responsible for creating. We are also working to understand more about how the broader property industry can make the best sustainable decisions, and we are committed to working with our customers to help our industry play its part.”

REA Group is among a number of large portal companies to embrace both the environmental and PR benefits of sustainability in recent years. Both REA and US market-leader Zillow now produce annual sustainability reports on the state of their domestic housing industries, and British portal company Rightmove has claimed a similar carbon-neutral credential since 2019 after appointing an independent carbon and energy management company to assess its emissions.
