INTERESTED IN REDUCING YOUR BUSINESS COSTS?
ecoBiz is a free program funded by the Queensland Government and delivered by the Chamber of Commerce & Industry Queensland (CCIQ), which helps Queensland businesses audit their resource use and reduce costs from waste, water, and energy bills.
After a free two-hour coaching session with a sustainability expert, businesses receive a written report with practical and actionable recommendations, which are often no or low cost to implement. Every year, ecoBiz specialists analyse how participating businesses have progressed. Those that improve their resource efficiency by 10% or more become Star Partners.
