When 5B was created a decade ago, it's aim was the same as it is today: to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy to help avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change.
The name 5B refers to the 5 billion years of sun left. It is both a call to action and a challenge to use this immense and powerful resource more wisely to create a clean energy future for the benefit of all. This is our North Star.
Our 5B Maverick solar technology has prevented more than 140,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere. Our contribution to CO2 avoidance rises daily.
5B is a signatory to the United Nations’ Race to Zero by 2050 but aims to achieve this much sooner as an organisation.
We're on track to achieve Cradle-to-Cradle certification by 2023 driven by a need to ensure that our products are safe, responsibly made and recirculated.
We've offset our emissions for 2021 and 2022 using Carbon Offsets Australia Pty Ltd, which is a 100% Indigenous-owned and managed company.
We're working towards B Corporation Certification for our Australian operations by the end of 2023, followed by our global operations by 2027 to embed sustainability in all our teams and functions.
We'd love to hear from you.
