About Us

Right now, the world is rushing to zero carbon emissions to abate the negative effects of global warming. Nature-based carbon credits are an invaluable tool to help industry transition to greener practices.

Our Story

The name ‘Salubris’ comes from the Eucalyptus salubris of the Greater Western Woodlands, a tree that has long been admired for its resilience and beauty in this harsh environment. The first Europeans named the tree after the Latin term for “healthful, wholesome and beneficial”. It encapsulates the attributes we’re bringing to the fight against climate change.

By partnering with Traditional Owners and local communities, we seek to ensure positive outcomes for many. These include empowering Indigenous communities, encouraging an even greater connection to country and producing higher value ACCUs.

At Salubris we believe nature, enhances value.

Our Mission

Inspired by the strength, resilience and multi-faceted nature of Western Australian flora like the Eucalyptus salubris, Salubris Australia aspires to be a leader in decarbonisation and generate tangible benefits for shareholders and the environment. By harnessing the regenerative power of Western Australia’s flora to provide something we call “nature enhancing value”, we are creating nature-based carbon credits that deliver more value.
