Sustainability Victoria Funding Grants

Sustainability Victoria Funding Grants

Congratulations to the Regis Sustainability Team for winning four government grants through Sustainability Victoria’s ‘Boosting Business Productivity’ funding program. The grant funding will be used to conduct energy assessments of the Regis facilities in Brighton, Cranbourne, Frankston and Sandringham, representing significant savings. The assessments will identify opportunities to improve our operational and energy performance while reducing our environmental impact.

This opportunity was made possible by Regis’ involvement in the Bayside City Council’s Golden Opportunities for Energy Efficiency in Aged Care Facilities program. During the workshops, Kaushik Sridhar- Regis National Sustainability Manager, presented our sustainability efforts and engaged Carbonetix (energy consultants) to do preliminary walkthroughs of the Brighton, Frankston, Cranbourne and Sandringham facilities to identify energy efficiency opportunities.

The initial inspections laid the foundation for Regis to submit four Sustainability Victoria grant applications. All four applications were successful and will be used by Regis to conduct detailed audits of all four facilities and build a business case to implement energy saving initiatives.

This is a great outcome for Regis’ Sustainability Program, Ignite, and shows Regis’ ongoing commitment to the Regis Environmental Sustainability Statement.
