Greencap working hard to keep Australia clean

Greencap Clean Up Australia Day

In February 2020, as part of its Waste and Water Committee’s sustainability initiative, Greencap participated nationally in Business Clean Up Australia Day as a Silver Business Supporter for the third consecutive year.

Clean Up Australia Day is the nation's largest community-based mobilisation event, with Greencap joining 635,000 Australians taking a positive step to improve the environment. The 2020 event collected and removed an estimated 15,500 tonnes of rubbish from parks, beaches, bushland, suburban streets and waterways right across Australia.  

Team members from all eight Greencap offices, including the new office in Geelong, rolled up their sleeves to get involved with events in their regions. Greencap volunteers represented a good cross-section of the business, with participants from the Health & Safety, Property, and Environment practices joined by laboratory staff and corporate team members, including General Manager Dean Comrie.
