What is EcoBiz?

ecoBiz Queensland provides Queensland businesses with free advice, training and workshops on ways to improve their environmental sustainability and lower operating costs.

This program helps businesses understand and save on their energy, water and waste costs.

Businesses can access free one-on-one coaching with an expert sustainability consultant who will provide an action plan outlining cost saving measures.

ecoBiz also offers training, events and webinars covering various aspects of energy efficiency strategies.

What Star Partnership Means

To recognise businesses who have completed the first stages of the ecoBiz program, they have the ‘Star Partner’. This is for businesses like us who have made a minimum 10% improvement in their energy, water or waste efficiency. Yay!

After providing ecoBiz with a little bit of background information on our previous 12-months of energy, water and waste bills, a regional expert visited us to conduct a thorough assessment. This is a one-on-one coaching session, which helped them determine some personalised recommendations for our business, which has helped us to save on our energy, water and waste bills. A written report was then provided with these recommendations on practical and tangible solutions.

We do custom trips!

Still haven’t found exactly what you are looking for? All our tours are fully customisable and can be catered to suit your time-frame, student interests and budget.
