North Sydney Council encourages business to join BBP

17 March 2015

North Sydney Businesses benefit from being BBP members.

Running a small business can be a tough gig. There are cash flow headaches and resourcing issues. So implementing sustainability initiatives can seem difficult on top of managing the day-to-day tasks.

Yet North Sydney businesses participating in the Better Business Partnership Program (BBP) are showing it’s easy and makes good business sense to reduce waste and energy, increase recycling and connect with your community. Since joining the program six months ago, the Kirribilli Markets have cut down landfill waste already by 13% through better recycling. They’ve partnered with the Smith Family to collect unwanted secondhand clothes from stallholders and redistribute them to those in need. “Working with BBP has been fantastic. They’ve been very responsive and helped us at every turn,” says Paul JW from Kirribilli Markets, having cut down landfill waste by 13% through better recycling facilities. See the clip below for more on this project. 

Free to join, BBP supports small to medium businesses in Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, North Sydney and Willoughby City Council areas to reduce their energy, water and waste disposal bills, as well as recognising community and staff initiatives.

BBP promotes participating businesses online and in the media.  Standout sustainability champions also receive deserved acclaim at the annual BBP Awards to be held on the 12th June 2015 at The Concourse in Chatswood.
