Testimonials

Hear what business and industry have to say:

The Program is an opportunity for businesses to take control of their energy use and costs, by designing actions that align to their business needs. This is also a great way to be part of the journey as we all transition to renewable energy.
Rob Herbert, CEO Be.Bendigo

As an environmentally conscious business, we endorse this program for its useful resources that have helped us reduce our carbon footprint and implement strategies to save on energy expenses.
Courtney Hazeldene, Manager CVGT

While businesses are hearing about the need to reduce carbon and become more environmentally focused, what we are experiencing is that businesses undertaking decarbonisation are finding that there are significant benefits including reduced energy costs, access to new markets and increased competitiveness for their business. Business should be including the decarbonisation conversation in every aspect of their business, whether that’s energy use, electrifying vehicles, plant and equipment purchases or the supply chain they work with, the focus should be on how rather than why.
Paul Henderson, AusIndustry Regional Manager Northern Victoria
