CitySwitch is celebrating some of our Victorian CitySwitch heroes in Melbourne this month as part of the Sustainable Living Festival.
Oxfam, Baptcare, Reho Travel, Ross House Association and the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources are all being celebrated for their environmental leadership and excellence, with 15 large scale posters on trees across the city centre.
The posters each feature one of the five signatories, promoting the work they have done over the past 12 months to reduce their environmental impact. Their annual emissions savings have been translated into the equivalent number of tress which would be required to take those emissions out of the atmosphere.
General Manager of Ross House Association said of the work undertaken in their tenancy “encouraging a switch-off attitude throughout the building has achieved great environmental outcomes”. The collective action in Ross House saved 90 tonnes of carbon emissions which is equal to how much carbon 4601 trees can take out of the atmosphere in a year.
It is hoped that the achievements of the local CitySwitch heroes will help to inspire other businesses to get started on their own path to improve their sustainability.
