ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCTS & INITIATIVES GCCM has led the way in sustainable initiatives, such as solar power. promotion. With the support of the City, GCCM established a presence on an Australia-based platform called ASPIRE (Advisory System for Process Innovation and Resource Exchange) where it started to trade and sell materials. The platform allows users to connect with others who may have ‘waste’ that might be useful to someone in one form or another. Materials that may have normally incurred cost to remove from site now potentially have economic and environmental rewards – ‘one person’s trash is another person’s treasure’ is an alternative to sending some materials to landfill. A good example of the concept in practice was the break up of an endof-life 15-tonne vessel sent to GCCM for disposal. Typically, this meant that much of the vessel would end in general waste but, based on the project’s findings, proper steps were put into place during the works. On-site business Sweep Marine Services broke up the vessel and diverted roughly 50% of the materials from general waste into timber recycling, scrap metal and e-waste receptacles. With the help of ASPIRE, the marina was able to quantify this further into an embodied carbon emission saving of 66.2 tonnes. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this is equal to 32.8ha (81.1 acres) of forest. Another workshop with the same key shipyard stakeholders, which focused on the education and implementation process of these activities, was designed to drive a cultural shift in the industry. “A lot of new owners are asking about recycled material. How do we make the boat greener? How do we stop pollution coming out of the vessel?” explained Kevin Altera, GCCM general manager operations and business development. “It’s very important we keep that conversation rolling – and we’re being proactive,” he stressed.
