lincolne scott is an
engineering firm recognised for sustainable designs. In 2006 it became
the first Australian company to become carbon-neutral.
Anthony Kearns is chief operating officer.
“In recent times a
large part of the push [towards sustainable business] has come from our
staff, particularly the younger ones.”
“We have had a policy of seeking sustainable products for some time.”
“Our push towards sustainability forms a large part of our market differentiation both to our clients and our staff.”
“It amazes me to see
large public companies declare record profits but indicate only an
‘intention to go neutral within the next 12 months’.”
“It is a brave company that does not take these steps [towards sustainability] as the current generation insists on it.”
“[Sustainability is] a critical part of the employer brand requirements of the next generation.”
“The business community has to stop seeing [sustainability] in terms of cost, but rather an investment in engagement.”
