WHAT IS IT
An initiative that works in partnership with business owners and operators, and landlords to identify and implement potential opportunities to: improve energy efficiency, access renewable energy, reduce water and waste
The program will have two parts:
1. An intensive initiative to be piloted with a small group of showcase businesses that can then be used as inspiration for others to follow. These businesses will be selected to represent a range of industry types.
2. A broader behaviour change initiative to provide support, networking and advice across the municipality. This program will require preparation to develop relationships within the business sector so isn’t scheduled to commence until 2018/19.
WHY HAVE IT?
Forty eight per cent of greenhouse gas emissions in Port Phillip are generated by the non-residential sector.
