EcoBiz Star Partner 20 21 WWE CMYK

Find out how our ecoBiz Star Partner Process Systems (a manufacturer in Brisbane) reduced their waste, water and energy use.

The free ecoBiz program has assessed the waste, water and energy practices in hundreds of businesses in Queensland and developed case studies to help businesses improve their operations and save money through sustainability.

With sustainability at the heart of change, Process Systems implemented many initiatives that significantly reduced operating overheads and their reliance on energy and water grid infrastructure. The site is now in a very good position to cope with the predicted increase in high-temperature days in Brisbane.

Process Systems are a long-standing ecoBizStar Partner.

"ecoBiz is a great source of knowledge. We use it to share what we have learnt and pick up on what others are doing.” Ryan Griffiths, Director
