"We have found that the Sustainable Business Network is one of the few programs that allows us to meet, participate, [take] action and share in the visions of so many like minded experts in their field and within the City of Port Phillip Community."

— Baenziger Coles

"The benefits of the business breakfasts has been in finding new opportunities for collaboration within Port Phillip including the installation of a shared solar array on the roof of our neighbour, with a power purchase agreement to distribute the solar energy created."

— Morris Group

Launch of the network

The first business breakfast was held in May 2019 and was a sold-out event. The overwhelming feedback from attendees was that the event was a roaring success and the network is filling a void in the local business community.

Attendees were inspired by some wonderful guest speakers, including World Champion skier Jacqui Cooper, and business owners shared their knowledge with one another. In addition, our own energy experts were on hand to offer advice to attendees.

Find out more about the event in the media release (PDF 160 KB).
