ECO Resources Awarded Regional GreenSmart Partner Status

ECO Resources has recently become a Housing Industry Association (HIA) Regional GreenSmart Partner, underlining its commitment to recovery, recycling and reuse of waste generated by the construction, building and demolition sectors.

What is GreenSmart?

HIA GreenSmart is a program offering up-to-date information on practical, affordable and durable environmental solutions for residential design and construction. As one of Australia’s first professional green building initiatives, the program offers a HIA accredited training course for builders and designers wanting to develop new skills and acquire green credentials, and get access to news and opportunities to help promote your services in the marketplace.

GreenSmart Building Accreditation

A project with GreenSmart project accreditation demonstrates to the growing green market and industry that you offer environmentally responsible home building and/or land development services. Approved projects can be showcased in your marketing materials and entered into awards.

GreenSmart Projects must demonstrate a commitment to creating minimal environmental impact or achieve net environmental improvement for the environment. All GreenSmart Projects incorporate responsible environmental practice in a range of key areas including:

  • Improving energy efficiency
  • Reducing water usage
  • Resource efficiency
  • Reducing waste

ECO Resources via its ECO Accreditation program is proud to partner with the HIA in delivering environmentally sustainable recycling and landfill diversion solutions to the building industry
