Australian Business Award in Sustainability 2017

Australian Business Award in Sustainability 2017


The Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner in The Australian Business Awards 2017 for Sustainability. Now in their 12th year, The Australian Business Awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of comprehensive award categories.

Helen Byfield-Fleming, Coordinator of the Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living (MCSL, the Centre) says the award recognises the Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living’s achievements in the research and development of education for sustainable development programs.

“The Centre is honoured to be awarded The Australian Business Award, winner for Sustainability 2017. With this award, my staff and volunteers will be able to work towards a brighter future for the Centre delivering sustainable education programs and activities for the Macarthur Region and beyond” Ms Byfield-Fleming said.

MCSL is a not-for-profit, community-focused organisation that aspires to be a world-class educational facility and model for the promotion of sustainable technology and practices in homes, urban precincts and businesses. The Centre aims to display and demonstrate alternative energy production and use, waste-water recycling, water and energy efficiency, waste avoidance and green space management. The Centre conducts community educational programs and projects that build social capacity and empower individuals to embrace sustainable lifestyles.

 “Today, companies are facing a competitive and continuously changing business landscape. In this context, the performance of companies depends more than ever on their flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness. New technological possibilities have the potential to transform the way companies operate within their respective industries with long-term gains in efficiency, productivity and customer loyalty,” Australian Business Awards Program Director, Ms Tara Johnston, said.

“Each year the ABA100 Winners are recognised for their commitment to business and product innovation and for their achievements in transforming business practices and end user experiences.

“The Australian Business Awards are proud to acknowledge the role of these leading corporate, government and non-government organisations for implementing innovative, well-managed high-performing business initiatives and for the research and development of their innovative products and services,” Ms Johnston added.

The Australian Business Awards program provides notable opportunities for high-performing organisations which implement world-class business initiatives and develop innovative products and services to be acknowledged and honoured for their achievements both nationally and internationally.

The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards.
