Platinum offers the ability to calculate an estimate of the carbon emissions made by the companies we invest in on your behalf. We measure the carbon emissions in tonnes per year for each $10,000 invested in the funds.*
The “Carbon Calculator” below allows you to input the amount you have invested in the funds, to calculate your estimated carbon emissions exposure. To provide some context, an economy class return flight from Sydney to London via Singapore emits 1.74 tonnes of carbon.**

As a means of underscoring that we’ve been taking this very seriously for many years, one thing that hasn’t changed since Platinum’s public offering in 2007 is our endeavour to buy carbon credits (at a corporate level) to offset the carbon footprint of our own business.
