Energetics would like to congratulate clients; Investa Property Group, Sydney Water Corporation and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia for their achievements in sustainability, as recognised at 23 November 2004 Green Globe Awards.

The New South Wales Government's Department of Energy, Utilities and Sustainability (DEUS)'s Energy & Water Green Globe Awards are the leading greenhouse reduction and sustainability awards scheme in NSW, established to recognise outstanding achievements across the business, energy and water supply industries and retail sectors.

New South Wales businesses spend $6 billion annually on energy. To date more than 240 companies have taken part in DEUS's Energy Smart Business (ESB) program since its founding in 1997. Collectively they are reducing more than 500,000 tonnes of polluting greenhouse emissions and saving over $30 million annually.

As the longest standing partner support manager, Energetics has a played a pivotal role in the ESB program. Energetics is also excited to have developed the latest innovative improvement for the program, our energy management diagnostic tool Energy Achiever. The Energy Achiever diagnostic is helping businesses in NSW to develop strategies for continuous improvement in energy management.

With this year's formation of the Department of Energy, Utilities and Sustainability, the Awards were expanded to encompass water efficiency and demand management. Many of the nominees and winners are part of the ESB program and Energetics clients were nominees and winners of several awards.
