Cashing in on Carbon
- 19 October 2010
A Climate Change Guide for Victorian Businesses
"Cashing in on Carbon" is a new guide designed to help Victorian businesses make the transition to the low carbon economy – and save money along the way. It provides Victorian businesses with:
- A practical overview of the key actions business can take to go low-carbon
- Advice on financial savings, environmental impacts and other benefits that actions can bring
- Case studies of businesses that have taken action and achieved savings and awards
- Links to resources, organisations and government support available in Victoria
This Guide is divided into sections covering nine key aspects of Victorian businesses, each with a range of actions businesses can take. Each action comes with a set of links to resources, organisations and government policies that can help, as well as guidance on how to find expert services or further information. With both basic and advanced tools available, this Guide is designed to help business no matter what their level of capacity or interest.
The document is primarily designed as an online tool, with direct links and references making it an easy-to-use gateway to a range of other online resources available in Victoria.
Cashing in on Carbon was prepared with the support of The Victorian Government. The Climate Group also wishes to thank the following organizations for their valuable help in producing the Guide: Sustainability Victoria, the Environment Protection Agency, the Victorian Employers Chamber Commerce and Industry (VECCI), the Australian Industry Group (AiG), Small Business Victoria and the Energy Efficiency Council.
