On 11 November, Energetics announced the release of our new eco-efficiency management tool 'Eco Achiever' as an integral part of the new ecoBiz pilot program in Queensland with Redland Shire Council.

7 Queensland businesses are participating in the ecoBiz pilot program, aimed at reducing water and energy consumption, and, waste stream production. Attending the event was Minister for Energy, John Mickel, Redland Shire Council Mayor, Don Seccombe and Member for Redlands, John English.

 

Redland Mayor Don Seccombe said to the 7 participating businesses, "It's inspiring to see the amount of support shown by the local business community for such programs as ecoBiz. You should feel proud to be part of this innovative project that will place your businesses as proactive role models for others in the Redland community to be encouraged by. The program will also have positive outcomes for the Council, by helping us to meet our requirements under the Local Greenhouse Action Plan (Cities for Climate Protection - CCPTM program)."

Redland Council has employed Energetics to provide consultancy support throughout the project.
