A Year in Review 2017

Thank you for being part of EPF this year. We wish you a safe and merry break and look forward to seeing you in the new year.  

A year in review

We kicked off this year with our international guest speaker: Luis Neves, from Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), who enlightened us about who GESI are and the role of ICT in achieving the SDGs. 

Following this international leader we learnt from our home grown Sustainability leaders who inspired us to be fierce, ambitious and take action. Everything we do counts and leads to a reaction.

Luke Menzel showcased energy efficiency results and progress globally and explained the best practice in Energy Efficiency policy in Australia. If you missed it, click here

We thank our speakers and sponsors for another amazing year.

Thank you Luis Neves, Alice Cahill, Stuart Hodgson, Kate Harris, Megan Flynn & Luke Menzel for imparting their wisdom. 

Thank you to University of Sydney, Fujitsu, Sustainability Advantage & Schneider Electric for supporting the events.
