Preserving the environment > We work with organisations to reduce waste & emissions, conserve energy and water, and minimise material and chemical usage.

For our own business, we have developed an environmental action plan using Ecomapping. Our efforts aim to continually improve our impact on the environment and are highlighted by the following actions:

  • Operating a paperless office
  • Reducing energy usage in lighting, heating & cooling, appliances and transport
  • Installing solar panels (1.5kW) and solar hot water
  • Buying “renewable” electricity from utilities
  • Offsetting transport related carbon emissions through direct planting of native trees and indirect purchases of credits
  • Reducing water consumption and using only rainwater collected on-site
  • Recycling to minimise landfill
  • Promoting biodiversity by preserving a remnant stringy bark forest on a 20 acre property in the Adelaide Hills – view property using Google Earth. This property has significant diversity in native plants, animals & birds. Preservation efforts include reduction of invasive weeds, foxes and rabbits.
  • Involved with local communities such as Bush for Life and Friends of Moores Rd.
