CCIQ ecoBiz partner Teys Australia, the country’s second largest red meat processor, has made a clean sweep of the Queensland Premier’s Sustainability Awards.

Teys Australia, with facilities at Beenleigh, south of Brisbane, and Rockhampton,  won both the Business Eco Efficiency Award and the Premier’s Award at the 2015 ceremony held earlier this month.

CCIQ ecoBiz program manager Manelle Issa said these awards recognised the effort of businesses, organisations and individuals across the state towards sustainability.

“This ecoBiz champion company was recognised as a leader in innovation in waste and environmental management and clean energy technology within the meat processing industry,” she said.

“The recent installation of the advanced waste-water treatment facilities with biogas capture at the Beenleigh and Rockhampton facilities are one of the larger projects Teys Australia has been working on to lower its environmental impacts through reduced carbon emissions, natural gas and black coal. 

“These investments  will see savings in energy, water and carbon emissions for both sites and come at an important time with legislation around energy supply and prices changing for Queensland businesses.”

Teys Australia is a beef processing and cattle feeding company operated by the Teys family under a 50-50 joint venture between the Teys family and Cargill.

The company has six beef processing facilities in the eastern Australian states and supplies high quality beef products to the international and local markets.

Teys Australia’s Beenleigh and Rockhampton treatment facilities will replace non-renewable energy sources with renewable energy generated on site, resulting in a major reduction in the reliance on fossil fuels. 

The Waste Water Treatment Plants will also provide a number of additional improved environmental outcomes that will advance sustainability in Queensland.
