Telstra amongst finalist for UNAA World Environment Day Awards 2016

Posted May 17, 2016

Congratulations to Telstra’s Environment Strategy and eCycle Service who has been selected as a finalist in the United Nations Association of Australia’s (UNAA) annual World Environment Day Business Awards.

World Environment Day Awards

The awards mark World Environment Day on 6 June and celebrate the innovation and creativity of Australian organisations, like Telstra, to encourage others to take positive environmental action. The eCycle Service was developed by Telstra to provide a responsible, safe and environmental  way for SMEs to dispose of any unwanted or redundant technology.

Driven by Telstra Business Centres, the eCycle Service provides a convenient and free pick-up and recycling program to ensure that old electronic devices don’t end up in landfill or clutter up the workplace. To deliver the program Telstra partnered with Infoactiv who are a e-waste recycling and stewardship business, for logistics and program design. Plus MobileMuster, for the recycling of all mobiles, accessories and batteries collected through the e-waste box.

The UNAA awards play an important role in raising awareness about key environmental issues and challenges, and inspiring and motivating individuals, organisations and businesses to take positive steps towards sustainability and environmental excellence. Winners of the 2016 Awards will be announced at an awards presentation dinner to be held on 6 June, World Environment Day in Melbourne.
