  Eco-Efficiency Analysis...

Searching for an easy process to reduce your organisation's energy bill..?

Looking for a way to fall in with the Queensland Government's Q2 target to cut Queensland's Carbon Footprint by 30% by 2020?

The first part of the process is to work out – what is your current consumption of these key parameters. 
We can do it for you or provide you with the tools to do it yourself?  Why not join our host of clients who are retaining us as partners to share the journey into the future?

Missing Link Resource Coordinators can provide tools to first identify energy inefficiencies at worksite level and then guarantee a significant reduction in energy consumption. And provide an ongoing resource on ‘how do we keep the momentum and savings going’? No Fuss, Supportive, Cost Effective and Practical.

The process is non-intrusive, done in collaboration with staff and seamlessly built into operating procedures. The benefits of reducing your carbon footprint, cost savings, engaged staff, marketing opportunities with proven results are apparent in our easily readable reports.

Eco-efficiency makes good business sense.  Being environmentally efficient can and does produce real cost and time savings. It produces positive relationships with clients and suppliers, as well as regulatory authorities. Reduction in the use of energy and the generation of waste are quantifiable cost savings for a business.

A business which promotes itself as ‘eco-friendly’, ‘sustainable’ or any other of these terms implies a commitment to environmental protection and thought about minimising the impacts of its business on the environment in which it operates.  

As a good social citizen it would be expected that in this time of ‘triple’ or ‘quadruple bottom line’ business principles, the environmental and social impacts of a business are just as important as the financial or safety aspects and need to be considered in the continuous improvement aspects of any systems thinking that are applied to ensure the efficient running of the business.

To help confirm where they are on their sustainability journey, The Missing Link has audited and worked with key staff to develop action plans with:

    Our greatest skill is to take complex science or legislation and put it in ‘real’ language for you: 
    • what does it mean to me?  What am I obliged to do? How can I make sure I comply? 
    • What do I need to tell the authorities or my clients to assure them we are doing the right thing?  

    And we help you put your story in ‘their’ language – engineer or regulators speak, so they understand your intentions or commitments. 

    We have years of practical experience working in industry, business and government departments so we know each set of requirements:  you still need to make a profit and satisfy your clients and staff, protect your community and the environment, whilst doing business legally, efficiently and using the simplest most effective ‘paperwork’ .

    We can offer services to internationally recognised standards to help your business become more competitive in a market place requiring increasingly sustainable performance. 

    We are 21st Century Green – Part of the solution and not just part of the problem.

    Kim Forde Recommentation

    The Missing Link's Director Kim Forde has recieved a Recommendation from TAFE QLD - " Kim has provided advanced instruction to a NWP50107 Diploma in Water Operations (Hydrometric Monitoring) group across Australia using web conferencing virtual classrooms in the subject of managing compliance in environmental management systems.

    She effectively contextualised this subject to the employer's needs, using their own policies and processes. She effectively interacted with the students and willingly shared her knowledge of sustainability and environmental compliance. I highly recommend Kim." - Tracie Regan
