ACAPMA has recently partnered with Greener, a Sydney based clean-tech start-up, to help our members fast-track their sustainability journey towards net-zero emissions. Fuel distributors, fuel wholesalers and petrol-convenience retailers are the backbone of Australia’s economy and have kept the country functioning throughout the darkest of times. We now have the opportunity to be the driving force of change and significantly move the needle to deliver a scalable impact that helps end climate change.

Under the partnership, ACAPMA members will have access to Greener’s new digital platform solution, called Greener for Business, to help them prioritise the steps they can take to reduce their carbon footprint via a tailored action plan while gaining access to exclusive offers, expert advice, tips and how-to guides that make becoming more sustainable easier than ever.

Australia’s SMBs, which include the majority of ACAPMA members, make up more than 98% of all businesses and contribute more than $506 billion to the economy. With 43% of small businesses running at a loss, and an estimated 48% of new businesses failing within the first four years, Australia’s 2.5 million SMBs are doing it tough. But with the right support, our under-resourced and time-poor members can play a vital role in the fight against climate change and improve their bottom line by taking climate action.

While the implementation of sustainable practices has traditionally been time-intensive and costly, Greener has built a solution that removes these pain points by making it easy for you to transform your operations across key emissions areas such as energy, waste, electrification, packaging, and logistics while also helping to unlock savings for your bottom line. For example, switching to Green Energy could save the average small business upwards of $800 a year and reduce emissions by 11.5 tonnes while high-impact changes like installing rooftop solar could save businesses upwards of $7,000 per year on their electricity bills in less than five years.
