Sustainability in Business at the Pittwater Council 2011 Sustainability Awards

Dragonfly Environmental won a Pittwater Sustainability Award for reducing its business operations’ carbon footprint.

This was achieved by completing a greenhouse gas inventory which included direct emissions from the companies fleet fuel combustion as well as fuel from equipment
such as brush cutters and chainsaws and emissions from electricity and waste streams and green waste from outdoor works. The actions that are being taken to reduce these Green-house emissions are detailed in the Company Carbon Action Plans.

In addition, Dragonfly Environmental works require an abundance of materials.  As a result, Dragonfly Environmental actively purchases materials that have come from waste streams (mulch, soil, wood and stone).  In design works it is specified that materials used are recycled / reused materials so that our Clients can also minimise purchasing from raw materials.

Furthermore, Dragonfly Environmental has replaced the use of herbicide where ever possible with use of other techniques such as thermal weeding which is especially effective in water-ways.  Dragonfly Environmental also has minimal paper use with a high level of automation of forms and electronic-applications via mobile phones and electronic forms.

Lastly, Dragonfly Environmental’s nursery uses water tanks to provide much of the water used and for water-plants large pots are filled with water then left for weeks.
