Local industry will play their part to improve Gippsland’s environment through a new "Gippsland Green Links" pilot program. GippsTAFE and EPA Victoria will work in partnership to manage the pilot program, with support from Ecorecycle Victoria, key local industries and their suppliers.
Gippsland Green Links is a supply chain project aimed at utilising the environmental knowledge and practices of major Gippsland organisations including Loy Yang Power, Yallourn Energy and Gippsland Water.
These organisations will then act as mentors to promote waste management and energy conservation to their suppliers through training and support.
The program will use "Cleaner Production" and "Waste Wise" business principles to inform smaller businesses on how to minimise waste and ensure the efficient use of energy and resources.
The aim of the program is to implement a waste management plan leading to a 50% uptake of developed and implemented waste management plans in 2 years, and a 100% uptake in 5 years.
Supply chain organisations will participate in training sessions where they will discuss alternatives to waste problems, write work plans, participate in team work, write up checklists, monitor and test processes, and discuss waste management with their mentors.
GippsTAFE will deliver training sessions, breakfast sessions, conduct site visits and conduct a review of the pilot program when it is finished.
Training sessions for the Gippsland Green Links program will begin in June.
