Resourcing the energy transition - VIC

A solar power system installed with a $15,000 Grant allows Cranbourne's Public Hall to operate off the electricity grid, and to reinvest cost savings into infrastructure and benefits for community users.

Equipping the sharing economy - QLD

A $15,000 SUEZ Community Grant is enabling the Brisbane Tool Library to save more tools from landfill and offer them to the community, reducing waste and growing a thriving hub for sharing skills and equipment.

Big water savings in little hands - VIC

Talbingo Kindergarten will become one of Victoria's first kindergartens to install water-saving taps in its children's bathroom, providing a valuable demonstration of water conservation in action, funded by a $2,000 grant.

Sun-safe sailing at Fernhill - NSW

A $15,000 SUEZ Community Grant has constructed environmentally friendly shade sails, made from recycled materials, over the Fernhill School's outdoor play areas. The sails give year-round protection from the sun's harmful UV rays, along with effective shading and ventilation to reduce temperatures in the warmer months.

Green light for green thumbs at Gregory Park - QLD

Residents of Milton and surrounds are now benefiting from the suburb's first community garden thanks to a $10,000 SUEZ Community Grant. Accessible to the entire community, the garden provides fresh produce for all as well as an educational program for local students to learn about the social and environmental benefits of caring for and connecting with the natural environment.

Conserving the natural environment - QLD

A $15,000 SUEZ Community Grant enabled the Heritage Park Bushland Care Group to undertake critical community-led conservation work at Wooroi Creek and produce new signage and educational materials.

Making better use of wastewater - NSW

Coogee Beach Surf Life Club's $4,900 SUEZ Community Grant allowed it to upgrade and expand its grey water system to minimise unnecessary fresh water use, and develop new community-focused sustainability education signage.

Protecting our wildlife - QLD

Wildcare Australia built a mobile 'soft release' aviary with its $3,830 SUEZ Community Grant, enabling it to re-introduce rehabilitated native birds and mammals back into their natural habitats gradually for greater long-term success.

Creating Cultural Community Art - SA

Teacher, students and parents at Lockleys North Primary School have collected loose parts for the junior primary school students to play with and are currently stored in a shipping container.
