Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary has created a Green Team to research and evaluate our environmental impact and we are working towards reducing this through changes to our energy, water and waste consumption.
We are committed to maximising the positive environmental and social impacts of our operations. We achieve this through water and energy efficiency, biodiversity, communication and planning. Through cooperation with our employees, suppliers and customers, we aim to set a new standard in environmental wildlife management. This will contribute to building a stronger Lone Pine and a safer, cleaner, more sustainable Australia.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary’s ‘Green Team’ consists of a member from each department across retail, animal and management teams. We have established a policy framework for the business sustainability plan which guides the team to reach the desired sustainability goals. The focus of this year has been reducing our reliance on traditional energy sources.
Lone Pine’s Green Team work closely with our staff to improve our daily practices to reduce our energy consumption through our daily procedures. This has encouraged all staff to be active citizens in reducing our energy usage. We will continue to analyse our methods to further improve our energy consumption.
We are constantly researching new and developing technologies which will help us to reach our goal of becoming the world’s first zoo to be off-grid.
