Green leader

A not-for-profit is one of the first groups to sign up for a NSW Government program to help local business reduce their environmental impact.

Warrigal Care has taken the lead in a $2 million NSW Government initiative to encourage businesses in the Illawarra, South Coast and Southern Highland regions to go green.

The ‘Business Treading Lightly’ program will help participants save money by improving efficiencies in the areas of energy, water and waste management, as well as reviewing supply chains and fleet management.

It will be launched next week at Warrigal’s administrative centre in Albion Park Rail.

The not-for-profit, benevolent organisation was one of the first groups to sign up for the program.

“As a not-for-profit we’re always interested in cost effectiveness and as an organisation caring for older people we are proud to do our bit for preserving the environment for the next generations,” said Warrigal CEO, Mark Sewell.

‘Business Treading Lightly’ is funded by the NSW Government’s Environment Trust.

The initial funding round is targeting businesses that run residential aged care facilities, service clubs and small industrial operations.
