Ringwood Chamber of Commerce: 'Grow me the Money'

By September 11, 2007No Comments

This evening’s Ringwood Chamber of Commerce included a presentation from the Victorian Employers Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VECCI) on the Grow me the Money, an initiative designed to assist businesses in improving their environmental sustainability while cutting energy, water and waste usage.

Like households, businesses also have a need to reduce their environmental footprint, particularly when it can also reduce costs and improve triple bottom line sustainability. 

Grow me the Money allows businesses to track their energy, water and waste usage, which allows companies to reduce their environmental impact through undertaking initiatives that also help to improve their financial sustainability. The program works through providing mentors to businesses, training programs and information on products and services that help businesses reduce their environmental footprint.
