WHAT can some­times seem to be a con­fus­ing world of car­bon cred­its and emis­sion ef­fi­cien­cies is cre­at­ing jobs for con­sul­tants to help busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als achieve greater en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

Pan­golin As­so­ciates Pty Ltd was born in Ade­laide in mid-2010 to ad­vise clients on how to re­port on and re­duce green­house gas emis­sions, con­duct en­ergy au­dits, trade and sell car­bon cred­its and mit­i­gate a price on car­bon.

The firm be­gan with five full-time staff and had more than $750,000 in rev­enue in its first 10 months of trad­ing.

Joint man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Matthew Curnow (pic­tured with David Ross, right) says it has a grow­ing net­work of staff and clients in SA and in­ter­state and is look­ing for more au­di­tors.

Work­ers such as semi-re­tired peo­ple or stay-at-home mums who want a day or two a week of work are high on its re­cruit­ing list.

‘‘ We’re do­ing a lot of en­ergy au­dit­ing at the mo­ment, that’s our big­gest growth area,’’ Curnow says.
