Networks, guidance & support

Regional networks

ASPIRE Logo

ASPIRE is a circular economy online marketplace to exchange waste – reducing landfill and turning waste into revenue. Acting as a matchmaking service, Aspire brings different parties together to sell or procure waste materials for recycling, repurposing or remanufacture. When materials are exchanged, the system calculates carbon statements that can feed into environmental reporting. As a result, ASPIRE helps to make circular economy concepts a reality and connect businesses in the Moreton Bay region.

Food & Agribusiness Network logo

The Food & Agribusiness Network (FAN) is a collaborative ecosystem to build capability, increase knowledge and grow a resilient food and agribusiness industry in Moreton Bay.

EcoBiz

The ecoBiz program from Business Chamber Queensland helps small to medium businesses improve their eco-efficiency.
