eWater Systems recognised for efforts with a Sustainability Award nomination
In Victoria’s 2017 Premier’s Sustainability Awards, eWater Systems has been announced as a finalist in the Innovative Products or Services category for its development of chemical-free technology used to clean and sanitise facilities and environments.
eWater Systems is an Australian owned biotech company that supplies electrolysis units to generate simple, sustainable and highly effective alternatives to harmful packaged chemical cleaners and sanitisers. The company has made it its mission to reduce the worlds chemical footprint.
eWater Systems is a world-recognised company that has developed a ‘water-splitting’ technology used to clean and sanitise environments and facilities such as hospitals, schools, manufacturing businesses and restaurants, proving that clean environments don’t require toxic packaged chemicals.
In 2016, eWater prevented seven million litres of chemicals from entering the supply chain and diverted approximately 10 million plastic containers from landfill by providing safe, sustainable and economical alternatives to many hazardous, wasteful, expensive and ultimately unsustainable chemical products currently polluting the environment and people.
The company recently scored in the top 10 percent of all B Corps (globally certified sustainable for-profit businesses that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency) in the Best for the World list Environment category and is the only Australian business in the category of Chemicals/Cleaning Products to be recognised in this category.
The interim chief executive of Sustainability Victoria, Stephanie Ziersch, has praised eWater Systems for its achievements in building a more sustainable environment and achieving finalist status in the 2017 Sustainability Awards.
Now in its 15th year, the Premier’s Sustainability Awards continue to promote leadership and innovation in sustainability, and encourage all Victorians to step up.
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony, hosted by media personality Charlie Pickering on Thursday 26 October at the Plaza Ballroom, in Melbourne.
The Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, will personally select the winners of the Premier’s Regional Recognition Award and the Premier’s Recognition Award, which will be presented at the Awards ceremony.
