Powerco joins Sustainable Business Council

Thursday, March 10, 2022
Powerco is a proud new member of the Sustainable Business Council (SBC), a global organisation that supports and connects businesses committed to creating a sustainable future. 

The SBC champions its members to be leaders in sustainability and, in doing so, to inspire other businesses to take action too.

Powerco Corporate Sustainability Manager Carol O’Sullivan says although Powerco has been implementing sustainable practices for some time, the SBC membership is an opportunity for further development and accountability.

“Our membership will allow us to collaborate with a community of like-minded businesses who share our passion for sustainability. We want to be proud of the sustainable practices and goals we have, and comfortable to challenge and explore new ways to embed sustainability across our business.”

As part of its SBC membership, Powerco will need to demonstrate its sustainable practices by meeting the SBC member commitments.   

This is in addition to Powerco’s own reporting practices, which in the last two years has seen it produce two sustainability reports, two externally assured greenhouse inventory reports and set an emissions reduction and offsetting target for its scope 1 and 2 emissions (excluding network losses). We also participate in the annual GRESB survey, an international sustainability benchmark for which we were placed first out of our peer comparison group in 2021.  

“All this work, in addition to our new SBC membership, shows our ongoing commitment to improving our sustainability efforts, which touch all areas of our business,” says Carol.
