ATQLD Gambling fund Success: Solar Installation for Gladstone Office
Apprentices and Trainees Queensland have been successful in yet another funding application. They are going green with the installation of solar panels at their Gladstone office using the $35,000 grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
Gladstone Area Group Apprentices Ltd trading as Apprentices and Trainees Queensland (ATQLD) is a not-for-profit group training organisation, specialising in the supply of Apprentices and Trainees to host employers in the Central Queensland region.
With the increased effects of climate change and it’s affects worldwide, ATQLD strives to be genuinely sustainable for future generations. The environment, economic and social systems need to be in balance, and as an industry leader and employer of over 120 young people, we want to lead by example that all three elements can thrive in unison. One aspect that would positively affect the environment, our business and the community is the installation of a Solar System at our head office in Gladstone.
Apprentices and Trainees Queensland’s CEO, Michael Walz, says ”We feel very fortunate and incredibly grateful to put this money towards becoming more environmentally sustainable. Apprentices and Trainees Queensland is looking forward to reducing our power usage, costs and environmental footprint”.
Apprentices and Trainees Queensland plan to re-invest into the community by using a local company for the solar installation.
