Each year, the Actsmart Business Sustainability Awards are held to recognise Canberra organisations that make an outstanding contribution to sustainability across the region. This year during the 10th annual awards ceremony, Indesco Managing Director Angus Gorman and Office/HR Manager Colin Imms were presented with the Motivation Excellence award due to the range of initiatives we have implemented over the last 12 months resulting in significantly improved levels of recycling undertaken by the company.
This award recognises organisations that have implemented an effective staff motivation system for business sustainability. At Indesco, our staff are provided with options for energy saving options on electronics, reminders of recycling messages are posted on kitchen noticeboards, and office items are purchased in bulk to reduce excess packaging and transport.
By implementing our organic waste recycling solution, the percentage of our overall annual waste going to landfill in 2018 saw a 92% decrease, saving almost 300kg of food waste from landfill by having it collected and recycled instead.
Well done team!
