Sustainable Business Australia (SBA) joined the Banksia Foundation in 2013 as a Foundation Partner for a combined business action voice on sustainability.

Since uniting with SBA in 2013, we’ve seen the mutual expansion of business, government and NGO networks. SBA have helped Banksia showcase and stimulate cutting edge, world class corporate practice in sustainability whilst SBA has been able to help reinforce Australian businesses to foster economic development in harmony with environmental preservation and social development.

SBA’s CEO Andrew Petersen said that “This relationship provides leading organisations with a platform for high-level discussions and initiatives to support their efforts to develop and share cutting-edge approaches, exchange ideas and find business partners to progress their sustainability objectives.”

SBA will work with the Banksia Foundation on a program of activities this year as part of Sustainable Development 2015 (SD2015).

Closed Loop

Closed Loop is an Australian company which has been built on the principles of sustainability.  It defines who we are and what we do (and we love what we do!).  In line with this passion, we have been a proud supporter of the Banksia Awards for over 10 years to encourage and recognise individuals and businesses who are working to improve our environment for future generations.

Closed Loop provides environmental solutions that focus predominantly on waste management and treat waste as a valuable resource.  Our solutions are based on the closed loop concept; a holistic approach that links the provision of food, packaging and other goods to the establishment of recycling systems to capture them after use, and to the remanufacture of their waste into valuable new end use products.  

We challenge traditional thinking to make businesses better and to deliver improved environmental, financial, operational and social outcomes.

Closed Loop services include:

  • Auditing services (used both in the design of initial systems and for ongoing quality control monitoring and continuous improvement purposes)  
  • State of the art waste infrastructure (including the ability to localise waste processing through onsite organics machines and turnstile mobile sorting units)
  • Design of recycling systems and processes
  • Management of waste and recycling systems and contractors
  • Innovative marketing and communication  campaigns to raise awareness and engage both internal and external stakeholders
  • Waste wise procurement and recyclable packaging ranges
  • Best practice cleaning and facilities management services
  • Inhouse production capabilities for the creation of customised training videos and unique ways of communicating our client’s environmental story to a wider audience
  • Data analysis and reporting
