Green Practices Take Root - Transworld, Steve Cummins

If high profile companies such as Google, IBM, Verizon and Intel are anything to go by, green practices are becoming the norm, if not highly desired in today’s business stratosphere.

Often devoting entire divisions to enhance green practices and image, there’s no end to the innovative use of green tech. From running servers off wind and solar energy, using recycled materials in everyday office tasks, to the use of biodegradable chemicals and inks for printing and maintenance, these popular practices compete in the race to be the greenest of them all.

As the rest of the business world catches on and refines their green image, Transworld Group is firing up its own green initiatives by way of its associated projects, including Hush Wind Energy, Sokerol and Tassea.

Since its inception in 2004, the Group has shared a niche interest in renewable energy, and technology that exhibits alternatives to oil and gas power generation, and as a result of this interest, Transworld Group has engineered the most efficient, technologically advanced small wind turbine, otherwise known as Hush Wind Energy.

In addition to offering the leading class turbine, Hush has developed a proprietary buffering system that will allow it to manage and distribute the electricity stored in its batteries. This enhancement will give the end-user greater control of how they distribute their electricity; whether it is during peak times or feeding this back into the grid.

Further complimenting our portfolio of green projects is Sokerol, a 100% organic oil and chemical absorbent. Unlike most other competitors, Sokerol rejects water in favour of oils, it is non-leaching and is fully biodegradable. This means that in Australia, once used, up to 100Kg of Sokerol that has absorbed hydrocarbons can be disposed of with regular waste without harming the environment, whilst delivering substantial waste disposal savings to the end-user*.

Renewable resources and energy have always been a part of the Transworld ethos, and this latest addition, Tassea, is set to encourage sustainable food production while offering niche suppliers a marketplace for their goods. Tassea brings world-class products to the table. Our quality assurance program ensures that, from harvest to plate, only the very best produce reaches our customers.

Not only do we support and promote green technologies, solutions and services through our portfolio of projects, but the Transworld Group is also committed to adopting internal policies to support sustainable methods of operating. This includes reducing our requirement for printing, and utilising cloud-based solutions to improve the way we operate globally.

As companies and consumers continue to embrace sustainable and green technologies, the Transworld Group will continue to develop its existing green projects, as well as looking for exciting new opportunities that are environmentally friendly, sustainable and that ultimately benefit the lives of people around the world.

* Sokerol passes the Australian Standard 4493.3-1997 (US EPA TCLP Method 1311) for both hydrocarbons and cooking oil (vegetable). This means it meets the highest international standards for the retention of these liquids and the solution for industries trying to establish an Environmental Management System in accordance with ISO 14001-2004. Please check with your local authorities first before disposing contaminated Sokerol in general waste as there maybe restrictions depending upon the local municipality.
