Vision

We strive to reduce the community’s carbon footprint for the sake of our planet and our children's children.

Principles

Within our business we are guided and committed to the following principles:-

 

  • Integrity – to be true and honest at all times

  • Strong Leadership – lead by example

  • Transparency – hide nothing

  • Continuous Improvement and Best Practice – always seek new and better ways to conduct our business with a special focus on reducing energy, carbon emissions and packaging whilst increasing recycling

  • Sustainable Work Practices – reduce, reuse and recycle.

  • To continue to assist businesses both locally and across NSW to gain access to the financial benefits offered by the NSW Energy Savings Scheme when upgrading to energy efficient lighting. Which in turns results in a reduction in energy costs and carbon emissions.

  • Continue to communicate and assist businesses both large and small on the NSW energy Savings Scheme and the financial benefits when upgrading to energy efficient lighting. And by doing so reduce their carbon emissions.

Our Ability and Duty to Act

We believe that we have the power to make a positive human impact on the diverse people in our world.

 

Our attention to environmental, social and economic responsibility includes working within the law and voluntarily exceeding legal requirements in order to be innovative and demonstrate leadership on the issues that are important to us (and our family).  As we design experiences, execute events and evaluate our successes we are able to choose every day in the big and small ways our actions and words build a better more sustainable world for us, clients, suppliers and our family.

 

Objectives

  • We commit to assisting businesses and homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint by at least 20,000 tons of carbon in 2023/24 per year and increase this to 40,000 tones per year by  2024/25.

  • Reduce packaging by a further 10%

  • Promote, educate and assist our clients to reduce, reuse & recycle.

  • Streamline and maximise our supply chain (logistics) to minimise the movement of product from manufacturer to end user.

  • Work with local community groups and Not for Profit organisations in the education of energy-saving initiatives.

  • Work towards achieving the principles of ISO1401 and ISO9001 by 2026.

  • Eliminate the retention of paper-based accounting document management by better utilising using Xero and Hubdoc. 

 

Achievements to date

  • A signatory to the Fluoro Cycle Scheme since 2015 (https://fluorocycle.lightingcouncil.com.au)

  • Donated over 3000 trees to a tree planting program in Newcastle

  • Use low-energy lighting solutions in the office to minimize energy usage

  • Embrace working from Home policy wherever possible

  • Recycle all lamps and products from upgrades at the appropriate recycling centres

  • Made the switch to digital forms to reduce the amount of paper used in the business

  • Flexible working arrangements to reduce travel requirements for employees, which improves employee welfare and reduces our carbon footprint.

  • Eliminate all paper based marketing materials.  Focus on updating Web site and other online forums.

  • Installed energy monitoring system at office

  • To date have assisted businesses to reduce carbon by over 150,000 tonnes.

  • 30 June 2023 to 1 July 2024 - 40,000 MwH over the deemed lifetime of the equipment. As a result Fraztec will have assisted in the abatement of 30,000 tones of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2-e). As at 27 May 2024, Fraztec has delivered 38,000 MWH savings and it is expected this target will be exceeded by end of June.

Fraztec’s personal greatest achievement to date is two fold.

  • One - working with one of the largest companies in NSW and managing their creation of the Carbon Certificates as part of their lighting upgrade as part of their company sustainable and cost saving strategy.  This project once completed will result in over 2,200 highbays converted to energy efficient LED Highbays.

  • Two – Our ability to provide access to the scheme to small and large business across Country NSW. We go out of way to assist wherever possible for smaller lighting upgrade projects to be successful and  gain access to the scheme’s financial benefits.  Fraztec has created financial returns for smaller businesses that may not have considered a lighting upgrade without the assistance of this NSW Government Scheme.  For example a small dairy farm near Coffs Harbour, a real estate agency in Moree,  A racecourse in Taree, Childcare centre in Griffith, Car yard in Gateshead and many others across Country NSW.  

  • Since 1 July 2023 to 27 May 2024, Fraztec has delivered lighting upgrades across NSW with total energy savings of close to 38,000 MWh over the deemed lifetime of the equipment. Using the current Australian National Greenhouse Accounts Factors document (published August 2023), Fraztec has facilitated the abatement of over 27,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2-e).
