Media release, 14 September 2017
Carrum Downs company Environmental Monitoring Solutions Pty Ltd [EMS] has been announced as a finalist in the Small and Medium Enterprises category in this year’s Premier’s Sustainability Awards for their Fuelsuite program.
The interim Chief Executive of Sustainability Victoria, Stephanie Ziersch, praised the team for their creative and insightful work towards building a more sustainable environment.
“Delivering these Awards each year means we continue to discover the talent and enthusiasm Victorians have for protecting their environment and thinking creatively about new models of sustainability.
“These Awards represent Victoria’s highest recognition for sustainability and acknowledge leadership, innovation and achievement. Each finalist should be congratulated for improving sustainable outcomes across business, government and within the community.”
The management of fuel stocking, storing, monitoring, and reporting across multiple sites can be complicated and time consuming work. However, if a company does not have the ability to access and analyse information pertaining to their entire fueling environment they run the risk of poor fuel management, which can cause a multitude of problems for the company, the community, and the environment.
An unnoticed fuel leak is one of the worst-case scenarios a petrol station can encounter. Even with low contamination, leaking fuel can be disastrous to both an organisation’s reputation and their environment.
Fuelsuite gives clients remote access to reliable, secure, and real-time data from their tanks around the country – anytime, and anywhere. With real-time updates, clients transition from a reactive business model to a transformative, predictive one, where they can see issues on the horizon before they become problems that impact business operations.
Now in its 15th year, the Premier’s Sustainability Awards continue to promote leadership and innovation in sustainability, and encourage all Victorians to step up.
The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony, hosted by media personality Charlie Pickering on Thursday 26 October at the Plaza Ballroom, in Melbourne.
The Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, will personally select the winners of the Premier’s Regional Recognition Award and the Premier’s Recognition Award, which will be presented at the Awards ceremony.
