“Many clubs do a great job at contributing to their local communities through grants and donations and in-kind contributions. Many also engage with local councils or other groups to understand community priorities. Some clubs also participate in programs to address issues of community concern, for example domestic violence. These activities are all part of addressing their social responsibilities.”
For over 9 years, EP&T Global has provided its technology and expertise to reduce energy costs and emissions for Australian Clubs.
Clubs around Australia all have something in common – a strong community purpose. In various ways they bring people together, support community and charity groups, sports teams, schools, returned servicemen and women, among others.

In their Best Practice Guide, ClubsNSW outlines that clubs have a responsibility to prevent pollution, use resources sustainably (such as energy and water efficiency), adapt to or address climate change, and protect the environment.
A partnership with EP&T Global has a 2-fold benefit of energy cost reduction and environmental benefits. Our EDGE Intelligent System supports our expert engineers, providing deep analytical capability and informing significant positive changes to building management.

“We have seen a substantial reduction in our energy and water consumption as a direct result of our work with EP&T Global. We’re saving half a million dollars a year. That’s half a million dollars of member’s money that goes back to the bottom line. Every dollar we save is a further dollar we can spend on our local community, on charities, sporting groups and organisations that our staff and members are all a part of and benefit from.”
Morgan Stewart, Group CEO, Blacktown Workers Club
“EP&T has been providing Liverpool Catholic Club with timely operational energy efficiency analysis for our club, sporting facilities and hotel since 2014. Their support for our maintenance team and local contractors allows us to take advantage of savings opportunities as they arise. The club values EP&T’s continued support and have included edge in our recent hotel expansion to maximise the visibility the technology provides.”
Dave Vidler, CEO, Liverpool Catholic Club
“As a not-for-profit organisation, this initiative not only supports Hornsby RSL’s goal of delivering sustainable outcomes for its members and guests, but also allows every dollar saved to be re-invested back into the community.”
