2006 BANKSIA EDUCATION AWARD

   2006 BANKSIA EDUCATION AWARD

Village Green’s Sustainable Business Management Model, Village Green Environmental Solutions, VIC

Village Green is a dynamic multi-disciplined consulting house, specialising in sustainable management and change systems for the small business and retail sectors.  The first research undertaken by Village Green in 2001 focused on the delivery of waste management services to Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), especially those in retail shopping strips.  This research determined the focus of Village Green – the development of a systematic process for conducting business with a quadruple bottom line outcome.  That is, taking into account economic, social, cultural and environmental concerns.  Village Green is now the leader in its field, educating SMEs to achieve positive environmental and economic outcomes, with a strong community focus along with reducing their environmental impact and associated business running costs.
