Analysis of ABS data undertaken by VECCI shows that for every dollar saved on energy and resources, more than ten times as much revenue would be required to achieve the same bottom line contribution.
For small businesses, the Victorian Employers' Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VECCI) assessments showed an average cost saving of approximately $4,000* per annum in resources which would be the equivalent to making $40,000 in sales each year.
