Time is running out for eco-friendly businesses to enter this year’s Green Workplace Awards.

The third annual Greenrock competition will reward firms that go the extra mile for the sake of the environment.

For the past two years Greenrock has celebrated companies who have made changes in the office to promote sustainability.

The deadline for entrants is October 15.

Past winners include Rosewood Tuckers Point for recycling its cooking oil as biodiesel fuel and Airport Operations who simply changed their air conditioning thermostat by a couple of degrees and saved thousands of dollars.

The Green Workplace Awards also recognize individuals via the “Green Champion” award:

Judith Landsberg, Greenrock President, commented: “The corporate environment is naturally competitive, it’s in their DNA, so Greenrock, in partnership with the Bottom Line Magazine, decided to harness this competitiveness to save money and to help the planet.”

Although companies need to register by next Tuesday they do not have to submit their plans until December 7.
