E-Bulletin: November Edition

Welcome to the November Energy Efficient Business e-bulletin, bringing you news and information to help your business use energy more productively.

Save on your building’s biggest energy user

Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) is a significant energy user for many businesses.

A training course taking place this month has been tailored to help you save up to 50% of your HVAC energy costs.

Held on 25 and 26 November, the course consists of two separate modules, enabling you to choose which topic areas may be most applicable to your business.

Attendance gives you access to a half-day one-on-one site visit, as well as post-training support to help you implement HVAC energy efficiency opportunities specific to your site.

Attendance is just $100 per participant, per module.

Waste glass and its opportunities for your business

A workshop aims to apply new thinking to the problem of glass recovery and reuse.

Less than half of all waste glass finds its way back into the productive cycle.

Technically fully recyclable, glass is a good example of how businesses can tap into the circular economy concept, where resources are continuously reused and waste is eliminated.

Organised by OEH’s Sustainability Advantage in partnership with UTS Business School, the workshop is part of the Disruptive Innovation Festival, a free global event curated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

The festival runs until 20 November, using a mix of online and face to face events.
