On Monday 27 February David will be launching the City of Port Phillip’s  Greening for Growth Forum. David has been heavily involved in the establishment of this fantastic initiative that provides an opportunity for local owners of small businesses to discover new ways of reducing costs through the sustainable use of power and water.

Those attending the event will hear from a number of groups that will offer their advice and expertise in these areas. These include Sustainability Victoria, the Victorian Employers’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Moreland Energy Foundation and the City of Port Phillip.

Attendees will also hear from local businesses which have successfully implemented sustainable initiatives and embraced green technology. These include small businesses such as Current Consulting, the Pure Organic Grocer and Kosdown and Daisy Dry Cleaning, the winner of Port Phillip’s Business Excellence Award.

A number of organisations that sell or provide training with eco-friendly and renewable energy products will also be present.

David has long been a strong supporter of encouraging the use of sustainable energy solutions by small businesses and saw the forum as an opportunity to encourage the wider adoption of this technology.

“Adopting green technology is not only environmentally friendly but helps businesses reduce costs by allowing for the more efficient use of energy and water,” David said. “Initiatives like the Greening for Growth Forum are fantastic opportunities for businesses to become aware of the products and services that are available in this fast growing area. I strongly encourage all local businesses to attend this event.”

The Greening for Growth Forum will be held from 5:30-7:30 PM on Monday 27 February at Port Melbourne Town Hall Auditorium, 333 Bay St Port Melbourne.

The event is free and light refreshments will be provided.
