Sustainability

Preserving the environment for the future

Sustainability is one of our care organisational values. As part of our commitment to this value, we are constantly striving to reduce our carbon footprint as well as encouraging and supporting the sustainability efforts of schools, businesses and community groups through our iPromise Grants.
iPromise Grants

The Tradies iPromise Grants provide financial assistance to help schools and community organisations implement environmental sustainability projects. The Grants are run once per year with up to $20,000 available. The grants are judged by a panel of experts from the NSW Office of Planning, Industry & Environment, Power Waste Management, Rana Environmental & Tradies own Green Team. The 2019 grant round has now closed. The 2020 grant round will open in March 2020.

From the cafe to the ocean

We don't often give a second thought to the tiny plastic straw in our drinks...but plastic straws wreak havoc in our oceans and cause serious damage to sea creatures. A recent dive at Manly Beach found 200 straws in one morning. That's why we've joined 'The Last Straw' campaign and use recyclable paper straws throughout all our venues.

Tradies Caringbah Goes Solar

Tradies Caringbah has joined our Helensburgh club in going solar! The new 40kw system was installed on the roof of Tradies Caringbah in April 2018 and now accounts for 8 - 12% of the club's electricity usage.
