GIW wins CitySwitch 2012 National New Signatory of the Year

GIW Environmental Solutions, partnering with their Richmond Office co-tenants, Tract Consultants, have been announced collective winners of one out of only two National CitySwitch Green Office Awards, capturing the title of ‘2012 National New Signatory of the Year’.

CitySwitch is Australia’s flagship tenant energy efficiency program, which is championing sustainable business in the commercial building sector and is helping to bring about market transformation by inspiring and engaging business owners and office workers across the country.

The judges said,
“If the definition of leadership is to inspire others to follow, Tract and GIW are the standout winner in this category. Their internal competition has all the hallmarks of best practice: creating competition to drive engagement, empowering teams to improve their environments, backing this up with budget and management support, and implementing ideas for continuous improvement.”

The award was presented by the Mayor of Yarra City Jackie Fristacky who said “Yarra recently became Victoria’s first carbon neutral council and the national recognition of Yarra businesses, Tract Consultants and GIW Environmental Solutions, demonstrates that reducing carbon emissions is an achievable goal that any organisation can choose to make.”

GIW and Tract are committed to sharing our knowledge and spreading the energy efficiency message. In so doing our ambitions are to make local businesses more competitive through operational efficiency and environmental awareness.
