The Business Sustainability Program

Green Industries SA's Business Sustainability Program provides support for South Australian businesses and organisations to improve resource efficiency (including materials, energy, and water efficiency), waste management, and lean production practices as a way to reduce operating costs, boost productivity, and environmental performance.

There are three separate funding support programs available through the Green Industries SA Business Sustainability Program:

Resource Efficiency and Productivity (REAP)

 REAP grants provide grants up to $10,000 in matched funding for South Australian businesses to complete a resource efficiency and productivity assessment. An additional $10,000 may be made available to kick-start implementation of selected recommendations from the assessment. Preference will be given to applications for projects that undertake an assessment across more than one resource area.

Solid Waste Opportunities Program (SWOP)

SWOP grants provide support to identify and implement strategies that reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill from businesses, not-for-profit organisations, tertiary education centres, Local and State Government agencies.

Lead, Educate, Assist, Promote (LEAP)

LEAP grants are available for business groups, industry associations and not-for-profit organisations to undertake projects that support South Australian industry to learn, build capacity, network and collaborate to overcome challenges and accomplish sustainability objectives that they may otherwise not be able to address in isolation, and taking a leap towards a circular-based economy.
