Industry eco-efficiency

Written on the 12 May 2009

 

AUSINDUSTRY and QMI Solutions will host a seminar this month for businesses interested in the economic and environmental benefits of operational eco-efficiencies.
Eco-efficiency goes beyond simply preventing pollution and limiting the use of resources in manufacturing and production: it provides for the competitive needs of business by enabling increases in the value of goods and services.
Hear from some of the region’s environmental industry leaders about how they implemented practical eco-efficiency solutions; Rowena Bell-Bradbury, regional manager, AusIndustry; and Mark McKenzie, manufacturing specialist, QMI Solutions; followed by two local case studies featuring Bruce Mitchell, Mitchell Builders and Charlie Foxall, Foster’s Group.
The event will conclude with a Foster’s Brewery plant tour. The event will be held on May 14 at the Carlton Brewhouse, Foster’s Brewery, Yatala. More info at: wendi.ng@innovation.gov.au.
