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).
