C.ex Coffs takes green award

IT takes a big commitment to create a small carbon footprint, and The Green Globe Awards honour efforts made by individuals and businesses working towards that.

At the recent NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water 2010 Green Globe Awards, the C.ex Group was among a select few in the state to be recognised for its long-term commitment to sustainability by receiving the 10-year Sustainability Achievement Certificate.

“Our commitment to sustainable environmental practices is a long-standing and vital part of our everyday operations at the C.ex Group,” C.ex Group CEO John Rafferty said.

“Over the past 10 years we have implemented sustainable practices based around energy, water and waste to reduce our carbon footprint on the local environment and encourage ‘best practices’ in our community, so we are very proud of this achievement.”

The Green Globes are open to businesses, individuals, government and non-government organisations and recognises leaders in sustainability and resource management in tackling climate change.

Before the dust has a chance to settle on their award, the team at the C.ex Group is implementing more plans to continue its work towards a further reduction in its carbon footprint.

Planned projects to rollout group wide in the next 12 to 24 months include a three-year solar panel program, further chemical and water waste programs and continued bush regeneration.
