On 21 June 2016, Southern Cross Care (NSW & ACT)’s Green Team collected the Gareth Williamson Sustainability Award: “Demonstrating Outstanding Sustainability Practices” at a gala dinner in Sydney. The Award was presented based on the environmental sustainability work across four key areas – Resource Efficiency, Waste Management, Supply Chain, and Our People.

scross“The Green Team” was formed in 2010 to strategically and physically guide the organisation on the sustainability journey through policy, education programs, environmental initiatives and building design. Our investment and effort in building our environmental credentials was applauded last night.

Green Team member Mahmoud Chatila accepted the award on behalf of the organisation. In his speech he acknowledged the care SCC demonstrates towards the environment, and how the all-important important backing of the board, management and employees resulted in winning the award.
