CitySwitch partners with RMIT students to deliver resource assessments

Commercial office tenant energy efficiency program CitySwitch has partnered with graduating environment students from RMIT to deliver resource assessments for participating signatories in Melbourne.

CitySwitch will pair a group of three to four students with a business to facilitate a scoping meeting to determine the areas of interest for the resource assessment, which could cover energy, waste, procurement, staff attitude and knowledge, transport or other resource use.

The students will then collect primary and secondary data and assess this for efficiency gains, policy revisions and opportunities for embedding and increasing business sustainability.

Each group will be mentored through this professional development process by CitySwitch and RMIT, with the project forming part of the students’ major assessment for the year.

The results will be presented to the clients at a closed conference in November.

This is the fourth year of the partnership, which has already had more than 40 businesses and 100 students participating.

There is only availability for 10-12 businesses this year, with only current CitySwitch signatories eligible.

Those interested should contact CitySwitch program manager Paul Whelan by phone 03 9658 8042 or  email paul.whelan@melbourne.vic.gov.au

*Please note that this offer is only available to Melbourne based CitySwitch Signatories as RMIT University is based in Melbourne
