Partners in Green
We work with many groups and businesses to offer the best information and service possible. Some we join and are members of, some we form associations with, and others we just really really like! This page is to show you those we support and those who support us. Our Partners in Green.
Associations and Partnerships
We work closely with the national CitySwitch program by providing energy and waste assessments for the program. This is a great program to be affiliated with as it supports businesses to improve energy and waste performance based on indicative NABERS ratings.
We are pleased to have the Green Building Institute as our online training partner. We work closely with them to create and make available training for tradies, property professionals and consumers in the area of sustainable and efficient buildings.
We are a member of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps and are proud to be involved and actively spreading the message on climate reality. We provide free presentations on climate change for any group or event. If you would like to discuss booking a presentation just let us know.
We are proud to be part of the Schneider EcoXpert program and have completed all training programs to comply with their requirements. You can find out more about the EcoXpert Program by clicking here.
We are very proud to be a founding member of One Planet Living in Australia. One Planet Living is a model, based on 10 principles, which provides a framework to make sustainability easy, affordable and attractive for everyone. BioRegional runs the One Planet Living program in Australia and on an international level. It helps Communities, Councils and Companies address these 10 key sustainability principles. We are trained Sustainability Integrators for the One Planet programs.

eTool provide an excellent Life Cycle Assessment software that helps quantify and certify the carbon, energy and costs impacts of a building, Commercial or Residential. We encourage professionals to use this online design tool when the opportunity arises.
We are working with Design Build Expo. DesignBUILD is a well known industry expo event for landscape and outdoors, structural and materials, interior fixtures and finishes and technology relating to the building and construction industry.
We are a member of the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV) and work actively with them to promote Accredited Sustainability Assessors in the industry and sustainability in the built environment. The BDAV are very proactive in the field of sustainable building design and promote efficiency and sustainability through their day to day practices, CPD program and building design awards.
We are a member of the Green Building Council of Australia and actively support and promote Green Star rated buildings on our Green Property Listings and our training. We are active advocates of showing off ‘Green Credentials.
We are a member of the Alternative Technology Association (ATA) and love all the work that they do. Their independent research and analysis is a great benefit and goes a long way to keeping us better informed. The ATA are an excellent organisation that manages to produce all this on a typical shoestring, not for profit budget. If you’re not a member already, we recommend you join up.
We are a member of the Australian Conservation Foundation and fully support all the work that they do to encourage care of our environment and sustainable living.
Green Moves’ Media Partners
We are a regular contributor for the REA Group and their residential energy efficiency tips and tricks blogs. You can see our contributions here.
We often write articles for ATA publications Sanctuary and ReNew. These publications offer a wealth of information for those interested in energy efficient, sustainable homes. ReNew is a good DIY resource and helps with anything related to building and creating an efficient home. Sanctuary is a great magazine showcasing truly beautiful sustainable homes.
We also write for StreetNews. StreetNews is a property information portal for local property news and reviews and is specifically for consumers. They are independent and transparent, provide highly localised information and real estate agent listings who are rated by their customers, not their peers. They have excellent content for Melbourne property market.
Those we work closely with
We work with Healthy Interiors who provide an interior design service based on creating Healthy Interiors. They are very mindful of the chemicals in our furnishing, finishes and other products in the home and provide a wealth of knowledge to assist those looking to create a safe and healthy indoor environment for their families. They help us to provide a complete sustainability service for those building or renovating a home.
We like and work with DSGN Kartell, they have a great collaborative approach, just like ours, and produce some amazing designs.
