When forests die, we die. Your organisation can turn the tides. Enter to win an official Carbon Footprint Analysis worth up to $2,800*.

What you'll win


UpShift & Ekos are proud to offer the opportunity for a kiwi organisation with fewer than 20 employees to complete an official Carbon Footprint Analysis with Ekos - for free

Check the terms of entry.

Ekos works with businesses, landowners, iwi, local and central government, and people across Aotearoa and the Pacific to fight the causes of climate crisis. 

Finding out your carbon emissions is a fundamental first step. Ekos will be your guide.

The Ekos team will use data provided by the winner to accurately and efficiently measure their total carbon emissions within a 12-month period. This data includes everything from how many computers are used in the office, through to how many staff might drive to work.

The Analysis is a comprehensive measurement that provides useful, practical information to help the organisation understand its emissions, locate the biggest contributing factors, and be empowered to address them.

Kia ora!

About UpShift & Ekos


UpShift & Ekos have a long-standing & happy partnership, based on the mutual goal of doing work that contributes to a better world. 

UpShift specialises in building complex applications for the environment, science and health sectors. The team has designed & developed critical tools that enable Ekos’ work to fight the climate crisis, and make their services more efficient & accessible.

Ekos straddles both the supply and demand sides of carbon emissions management. In addition to providing emissions measurement and reduction planning, their self-sustaining forestation projects and programmes in Aotearoa and the Pacific generate carbon credits for purchase, creating funding for re-investment.

UpShift built & maintains 'dCarbon,' a powerful tool Ekos uses to measure emissions based on complex business data.

dCarbon replaced a stack of spreadsheets & many hours of manual calculations. It plays a vital role in evaluating your business’ carbon footprint.

This, along with a new freight calculator that encompasses seven different calculations, has had a radical impact on Ekos’ ability to scale and deliver affordable services.

Now, the UpShift team is developing a Carbon Inventory platform, which will keep a detailed digital record of all the credits bought, generated, & sold by Ekos, & to which reforestation project they’re linked.

UpShift is proud to be 'Climate Positive Certified,' by Ekos, reflecting an ongoing commitment to measuring & offsetting at least 120% of organisational emissions every year.
