Business Resource Efficiency Program

  • “The Action Learning environment proved invaluable as a place to think aloud, test existing ideas, and gain new ideas, friends and industry contacts. I highly recommend this program to any business that has a problem to solve, and we’re now well on our way with ours!”
    Ray Howe, Production Manager (& Plant Engineer), Botanical Resources Australia
  • “Through the BREP program so far, I have learnt that even though the businesses we all work in are great and varied, we all seem to share common issues and all have the desire to make change as best we can in our own spaces.
    In our business we are now actively separating our waste into recycling and general waste. We are looking at how to further increase our capacity to reuse some of our waste, such as cardboard and shredded paper. We have begun the process of auditing our waste collection contracts and are currently investigating which contractors can meet our recycling needs either now or in the near future.
    Action Learning has been valuable to me as it has provided me with opportunities to work with like-minded people with diverse experiences. Bouncing ideas around in an accepting and supportive environment has been an amazing opportunity; being able to understand and value how other people can approach and break down issues/projects and look at them from a different perspective has already given me skills, which I now apply in both my work place and personal life. The hands on approach suits my learning style and stepping out of my own space, physically going to another workspace and seeing how other people do things, has been invaluable.”

Electric Vehicle Working Group

  • “The work of the Tasmanian Climate Change Office has been pivotal in ensuring that Tasmania can take up electric vehicles. The ChargeSmart grants will allow Tasmanians with electric vehicles to travel almost anywhere in Tasmania without range anxiety. The working groups facilitated by the office help us remove the other barriers to electrification of transport.”

Fert$mart, DairyTas

  • “TCCO’s funding has provided the momentum for significant on-farm infrastructure works to help farmers implement their Fert$mart Plans. This includes practical solutions to extend effluent irrigation, which will provide numerous benefits for farmers including financial savings, improved water quality and reduced conventional fertiliser inputs through maximising the use of effluent as a fertiliser.”
    Jonathan Price, Executive Officer, DairyTas

Climate Change and Health Roundtable

  • “Public Health Services were very pleased to have the support of the Tasmanian Climate Change Office in organising the Tasmanian Climate Change and Health Roundtable in April. Our attendees were given an overview of the issues, concentrating on the unique Tasmanian perspective. All attendees worked to develop over 120 actions that would reduce emissions and promote health across a number of priority areas. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Tasmanian Climate Change Office to progress these actions in the health sector.”
    Dr Siobhan Harpur, CEO Public Health Services, Department of Health
