Certified B Corp Greener has launched Greener for Business, a program that was designed for Australian businesses to fast-track their path towards net zero.
Designed by experts using the latest environmental and behavioural science, and aligned to the UN’s Race to Zero, Greener’s solution provides businesses with a simple step-by-step action plan to help fast-track their journey to net zero emissions by making them more time- and cost-effective, which will make it easy for businesses to transform their operations across key emissions areas such as energy, waste, electrification, packaging, and logistics and unlock savings for their bottom line. It offers not only simple solutions but also serves as a central source of available government rebates to help them take climate action and unlock potential savings at the same time.
As part of the program, the start-up also announced a strategic partnership with Origin, one of Australia’s largest energy retailers – the latest in a number of big-name organisations coming together to help SMEs on their path to net zero. This is in addition to the support provided by a coalition of partners including Origin, the Australian Retailers Association (ARA), Sendle, Mr Yum, Shopline, Better Packaging Co, and local city councils, including Ku-ring-gai, North Sydney, Willoughby, Yarra and Moonee Valley councils.
With Greener’s partnership with Origin, SMEs that join Greener for Business can enjoy exclusive deals on offerings on products, including solar to help them on their decarbonisation journey with economical and accessible options.
“As one of Australia’s leading energy retailers, we are dedicated to supporting all our customers, including small and medium businesses, throughout their carbon reduction journey by providing tailored energy solutions,” Origin Small and Medium Business – Retail General Manager, Jonathan Mattock, said. “We are delighted to partner with Greener to provide small and medium businesses with affordable, customised solutions, giving customers better access to great value and a broader range of solutions outside of energy.”
Acknowledging that small and medium businesses are the backbone of Australia’s economy, Tom Ferrier, Founder of Greener, pointed out that many are also cash-strapped, time-poor, and under a huge amount of pressure just keeping their heads above water.
“That’s why we’re working hard to help them get greener and save money at the same time,” Ferrier said. “And it’s partners like Origin that help us move the needle and deliver scalable impact by making it easy for SMEs to reduce their emissions – like switching to 100 per cent government-accredited GreenPower, one of the best ways to reduce emissions from electricity usage that they can sign up to in less than five minutes.”
