Does your business use more than 1000GJ of gas each year? In monetary terms, 1000GJ of gas works out to be about $30,000!

Being a sustainable business is about more than just being green. Reducing your impacts on the environment can help your business save money, become more resilient and productive and give you a distinct competitive advantage in a market who values efficiency more than ever.

The Environmental Protection Authority’s (EPA) 2015 NSW state of the environment report provides that gas consumption has been fairly consistent in NSW over the past five years, with manufacturing and electricity generation using the most gas.
