NSW businesses recognised for energy productivity boost 19 June 2015

NSW Minister for the Environment Mark Speakman was on hand at the inaugural Energy Productivity in Action event on June 18 to congratulate the ten businesses.

Delivered by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) in association with the Energy Efficiency Council, the NSW Business Chamber and Australian Alliance to Save Energy, the event showcases real-world examples of organisations that have improved their business performance through improved energy efficiency.

With OEH support, the ten organisations achieved combined annual bill savings of more than $3.3 million, including a reduction in energy use by 42,300 MWh.

In the process, these businesses have also unlocked productivity benefits, ranging from reduced machinery downtime, increased throughputs, improved staff wellbeing and deferred need for new machinery.

 The organisations formally recognised for their achievements were:

  • ¬†First Creek Winemaking Services
  • Charles Sturt University
  • Bankstown Sports Club
  • Delta Electricity
  • Brookfield (for their Sydney commercial office building at 52 Goulburn St)
  • Austral Bricks
  • Earlyrise Baking
  • ISPT (for their Sydney CBD building located at 477 Pitt St)
  • Inghams Enterprises
  • Monroe Springs (Australia).

To date, more than 19,000 businesses across the state have been assisted by OEH to take action on sustainability and energy productivity, shaving a total of $223 million annually off their bills.
