2006 BANKSIA SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

   2006 BANKSIA SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

Visualising our Environmental Footprint- Australian Arrow Pty Ltd, VIC

As a leading automotive components manufacturer, Australian Arrow Pty. Ltd. is relentless in its pursuit of the shrinking environmental footprint.  It has a fully integrated approach to managing its environmental impact, with the key element being the visualisation of its environmental footprint throughout the workplace.   Commitment to the environment is quite obvious to all visitors and employees who visit Australian Arrow’s Carrum Downs manufacturing facility in Melbourne.  The message is “loud and clear” –  from the initial environmental awareness signage at the driveway entrance and visitors’ parking bays, through to the foyer, the office areas, production and stores areas, culminating with the extensive “Green Wall” and “Recycling Supermarket” , which is used for environmental awareness, induction and training.  The Japanese philosophy of a well organised and VISUAL workplace has been a fundamental driver behind the level of environmental awareness at Australian Arrow, harnessed towards environmental management with great success, to create a uniquely environmental visual workplace.
