PACIA, the peak body representing Australia’s plastics and chemical industries, is successfully assisting its member companies and industries to strive towards leadership in health, safety and environmental performance through innovative approaches and sustainability programs.

PACIA, the peak body representing Australia’s plastics and chemical industries, is successfully assisting its member companies and industries to strive towards leadership in health, safety and environmental performance through innovative approaches and sustainability programs. The Carbon Solutions project is a key component in the sustainability program for members, supported through the Sustainability Covenant with EPA Victoria, and in collaboration with other stakeholders including the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment, Sustainability Victoria and VECCI (through Carbon Down). Its purpose is to assist members with the challenges of adapting to a new energy and low carbon emission future.

Equilibrium’s engagement by PACIA is to:

  • Provide information on both practical and technically complex options for adopting reduced energy consuming/low carbon emission technologies.
  • Undertake carbon auditing to benchmark business performance and establish the carbon intensity of products/services.
  • Assist members with identifying and adopting low energy/carbon emission technologies and preparing a brief report outlining the outcomes of any analysis and provide recommendations where appropriate.
  • Verify and complete energy management plans, assist in the presentation of the results and establish recommendations through a combination of workshops, survey or scenario planning sessions (which may include addressing behaviour and/or attitudes to energy consumption).
  • Hold a series of Carbon Solutions Forums. There have been six successful Forums to date (over 2010-2011), with an average attendance of fourty people per forum.
