  • 11. CASE STUDY This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust and by Sydney Water’s Every Drop Counts Business Program. This project is run in partnership between Ku-ring-gai, North Sydney and Willoughby City Councils. Sustainability drivers Matt Ward, owner of the business, had already put measures in place to reduce energy and water use and to appropriately dispose of waste. He became involved with the Better Business Partnership during a time when he was looking for recognition for what they were doing, as they were applying for grants and awards. Matt believes that being involved with the Better Business Partnership helped them make it to the finals for this year’s Green Globe Awards. Money was not a motivating factor for the business to be involved with the BBP, but the savings on their energy bills have been an unexpected and delightful result. Results and badges Energy Saver: Replaced halogens with LED lighting Turned off under utilised hot water system. Waste Saver: Introduced recycling and re-use of waste products including reuse of cardboard boxes for outgoing orders. Community Support: Promote organic and fair trade industries Supports local schools through ‘healthy fundraising’ activities Have a policy to consider community at all levels and potential impact of their business decisions. Sustainable Purchasing: Purchases organic, locally grown produce Orders in bulk to minimise packaging Uses biodegradable packaging whenever possible Uses environmentally friendly cleaning products. A message for other businesses Matt feels that it is important for other businesses to become educated in the area of sustainable business practices. The Better Business Partnership team makes it easy, they explain why and how to do things, and will also help them find ways they can save money. BUSINESS OVERVIEW HONEST TO GOODNESS IS A THRIVING BUSINESS THAT SUPPLIES WHOLESALE ORGANIC AND NATURAL FOODS. As a leading supplier of certified organic foods they are already committed to providing sustainable produce and running a sustainable business. The business employs 22 people and is open seven days a week. The main warehouse is located in Artarmon. Honest to Goodness ‘One of the reasons we did it was because it’s sort of… it’s one thing to say we do all this stuff but we kind of wanted to work with an external body and…it’s about having customers recognise that at least we’re trying to do things…that’s important to us as well’. ! ! HEATING, VENTILATION & AIR CONDITIONING. Introduction Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) is essential in most settings to ensure a pleasant, comfortable and safe work environment. In commercial buildings in Australia, 70 percent of energy usage and 63 percent of greenhouse gas emissions are estimated to be contributable to heating, cooling and ventilation2. HVAC typically accounts for 40-50 percent of the total energy bill for businesses and commercial buildings1,2,3. Significant energy saving design and equipment opportunities are available when constructing new buildings, but several possibilities to improve heating and cooling performance can also be achieved in existing systems. Energy Saving Tips Quick wins: • Use only when and where necessary. Ensure HVAC systems are turned off when the building is not occupied, for example overnight and during weekends. • Keep your employees informed. Encourage employees to ensure doors, windows and the like are closed when appropriate and that they are aware of the implications and benefits of adopting different behaviours and initiatives. • Adjust the temperature after season. For maximum comfort, the temperature of rooms should be 24-25°C in summer and 18-20°C in winter. Additional heating or cooling results in energy wastage. Infrequently used rooms such as toilets and storerooms can be set to 16°C in winter, saving on heating costs for these areas by around 30 percent1. • Section off unused areas. When heating or cooling, ensure both vents and thermostats in unoccupied areas are sectioned off to avoid energy wastage. • Use fans. Temperature, humidity, and air movement all affect the comfort of a room. The use of fans can therefore reduce the need for air conditioning allowing for a temperature setting of three to five degrees higher being as comfortable with fans. • Avoid peak demand periods. By adjusting workplace schedules and reducing energy use during peak demand periods, savings can be made on air conditioning, lighting and other electricity use. • Maintain filters. HVAC filters should be maintained or changed on a regular basis as recommended by the manufacturer, which can be as frequently as monthly during peak cooling or heating seasons. Proper filter maintenance will help avoid energy wastage and overwork of equipment. • Maintain the system. All HVAC equipment needs to be maintained on a regular basis to ensure efficient operations, reliability and long life. Proper maintenance can save up to 10 percent of space conditioning energy usage4.
