Sustainable Business


Sustainability is imperative to economic success in the decades to come as the global supply of nonrenewable resources dwindles at the same time demand from emerging markets grows.

At our Sustainable Business Breakfasts, join with other local business owners over a hot breakfast, to hear participating business profiles, their interest in sustainability and new initiatives to reduce operating costs.  Become part of a growing network of businesses that are aware of the competitive advantage of sharing sustainable knowledge and business innovation.

A growing number of Kingston businesses recognise the value of sharing sustainability initiatives and information at bi-monthly networking breakfast.

Operation Clean Sweep

Making zero pellet loss your goal.

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) introduced the Operation Clean Sweep® program to the USA in 1992. Since then it has also been successfully implemented in over 22 jurisdictions including Europe, New Zealand and Canada. The message is simple: Resin pellets should be contained, reclaimed and/or disposed of properly. The program has now been introduced to Australia in an effort to follow the USA industry goal of zero pellet loss. This project was funded through the Victorian Government's Litter Hotspots Program.
