Sustainable businesses

The transition to a resilient low-carbon economy brings many opportunities for Queensland’s businesses and industries. Innovative operational practices, access to new markets and improved competitive advantage are all positive outcomes that come from operating in a more sustainable way. The Queensland Government is supporting business and industries to improve their sustainability and take advantage of the opportunities of a zero carbon economy.


ecoBiz is a free Queensland Government funded program delivered by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ). The program provides personal coaching, site surveys, training and tools to small and medium sized businesses to help them improve resource efficiency and environmental sustainability and reduce operating costs.

In 2018–19, certified ecoBiz partners reduced both their energy and water usage by 31 percent, and waste by 36 per cent. Collectively, they reduced operating costs by almost $2.6 million.
