Is your small business ready for a low carbon economy?

The pilot BREP delivered in 2019, is the first of its kind in the world, using facilitated action learning to achieve real business outcomes for participating SMEs and valuable learning for individual participants and the wider business community. The 2019 program was dominated by projects focused on diverting materials from landfill, managing inventory, and process improvement to reduce production waste. This time, the program is seeking participants interested in developing alternative products and services, and building alternative business models, for the circular economy.

What do you need to do to prepare for systemic economic change and what role can your business play to promote circularity in Tasmania?

Business Action Learning Tasmania (BALT), in partnership with the Tasmanian government, is inviting Tasmanian small businesses, social enterprises, local government and other stakeholders in resource management, to come together to explore and experiment with sustainable business development.

On a small island state, there are significant opportunities for us to leverage our unique advantages, by working together.

Who should get involved

  • SME owners and leaders and Not-for-Profits, who are committed to resource efficiency and are keen to pursue emerging business opportunities in the developing circular economy.
  • Business networks are invited to partner with BALT to promote and support the formation of working groups, within their membership.
  • Councils, who are interested in supporting SMEs and not-for-profits in their local government area, are welcome to be involved as important stakeholders.

Places are strictly limited to 20 eligible small to medium-sized businesses. This allows the formation of four action learning sets, with four to six members in each set. Sets will be established in November and December 2022. Participating is entirely free for eligible SMEs and NFPs.
