Envirofluid is honoured to be selected as a finalist for three categories in the Australian Aviation Awards 2022.
Aviation Support Business of the Year
Manufacturing/Maintenance Business of the Year
Safety Innovator of the Year

The Australian Aviation Awards is the premier event of the year that recognises leading professionals and businesses in the Australian aviation industry. The awards are regarded as one of the aviation profession’s most prestigious accolades, pinpointing professional development and showcasing the individuals and businesses leading the way in the industry.

The finalists, which were announced on Thursday, 21 July 2022, feature individuals and businesses across various fields in Aviation, from pilots, commercial staff, support teams, manufacturing, and more.

To be recognised for three categories is quite a privilege and Envirofluid is honoured to be counted among other such esteemed nominees. The black tie gala dinner will be held on 1 September 2022, Thursday, at The Star, Sydney, where winners will be announced.

To show our support to NAIDOC week, Envirofluid is thrilled to announce our official partnership with Yerran Industrial, a 100% Indigenous-owned and operated Local Darwin Business. Yerran Industrial boasts more than 80 years’ combined experience in the construction, defence, mining and resources (oil and gas) industries.

The team at Yerran Industrial has ample experience working with products supplied by Envirofluid, not only with Australian-made environmentally friendly chemicals, but more recently, including the contract for the rental of many parts washers across the army, navy and air force. Yerran Industrial also provides 3PL services for Envirofluid in the Northern Territory, an arrangement that we find invaluable.

Yerran Industrial is accredited to a full member of the Northern Territory Indigenous Business Network and the Australian Industry and Defence Network-Northern Territory. The company is also a Certified Indigenous Supplier with Supply Nation.

There are policies in place through the Australian federal and state governments that show support to our Indigenous counterparts and help stimulate Indigenous businesses throughout our nation. The Indigenous procurement policy has been developed to significantly increase the rate of purchasing from Indigenous enterprises, which we are happy to play a small part in.

Recently, Yerran Industrial showcased Envirofluid products at Connect 2022, Supply Nation’s annual flagship event for the Indigenous business sector. The event, which is held in May each year, brought together over 1,860 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, corporate organisations and government departments in order to showcase the calibre of diverse Indigenous businesses, aboriginally-sourced products and promote networking opportunities.

Envirofluid joins in the nation’s goal of the economic empowerment of indigenous businesses and Australians and we look forward to working alongside Yerran Industries..

Most Businesses, large and small, have a greater impact on their community than they realize through the procurement decisions they make on a daily basis. Organisations have a great responsibility to recognise how they indirectly impact their network and partners with the social and environmental ramifications within the supply chain being highlighted in recent years. Emphasizing sustainable procurement and developing programs that support such practices benefit the company as well as the wider community.

What is Sustainable Procurement?

Sustainable procurement takes into consideration the social, economic and environmental factors, while not compromising on price and quality, in the organisation’s purchasing processes and decisions.

More than just meeting compliance programs and maintaining corporate social responsibility, effective sustainable procurement strategies ensure that organisations are not only capitalizing on benefits, but reducing negative repercussions as much as possible. For companies that are either about to establish their first sustainable initiative or planning to expand an existing one,  incorporating their supply chain processes is integral to achieving sustainability goals.

The Pillars of Sustainable Procurement

1. Environmental – This deals with minimising the impact on the environment from purchasing practices. Compliance with local and/or national environmental laws concerning CO2 emissions, maintainance of  minimal carbon footprint, as well as the elimination of hazardous materials and waste are just some examples.

2. Social – Considering the social impacts of purchasing decisions such as ensuring worker health and safety, upholding employee rights and fair compensation, as well as ensuring consumer safety and child labour prevention, to name a few.

3. Economic – The cost of shifting to sustainable products and services also needs to be justified. Some investments might cost the company in the beginning but provide significant returns or cost of ownership reductions over time.

Benefits of Sustainable Procurement

With goals such as improving the quality of the environment, communities and the economy it can be easy to see the benefit companies will reap in the process.

  • Risk and reputation – Now more than ever, businesses are expected to be responsible and have a legal and moral obligation to ensure that the way they conduct their operations is above reproach. Consumers and other entities will have no problems doing business with companies that take steps toward reducing or eliminating injury to people or damage to the environment.
  • Cost reduction – An effective sustainable procurement strategy will ensure cost reductions for a business in terms of improved supply chain efficiency, lower energy consumption and minimal waste, among many others. The savings can be used to make further changes to the company to improve productivity and performance and can result in increased profits over time.
  • Revenue growth – A strong corporate social and environmental responsibility program builds brand value and gives a competitive advantage. The Global Sustainability Study 2021, conducted by Simon-Kucher & Partners, has revealed that consumers are more likely to trust firms that have a reputation for sustainability, which can lead to more business. Of over 10,000 respondents across 17 countries, 85 percent have stated that they have shifted toward being more sustainable over the past five years.
  • Future-proofing – Organisations that have established and continued to strengthen sustainable procurement policies are more likely to future-proof themselves against supply scarcity, price volatility as well as social, economic and environmental changes.

Establishing and implementing a sustainable procurement program can be challenging, but the benefits cannot be overstated. The advantages presented by such policies have motivated numerous firms to ensure sustainability within their supply chain to impressive results.

This is because consumers and other businesses choose entities that have ingrained sustainability into their value chain, which is substantiated by a 2020 report showing that companies with better sustainable investment profiles consistently outperform those without. The continued growth in sustainably invested assets worldwide is evidence that it works and that it is here to stay.
