“The 5 star energy rating was a real, tangible example of the Opera House’s commitment to being more energy efficient and a fascinating intersection between the Opera House’s organisational goals and my work at Honeywell.”
Since then, Andrew has implemented various solutions for achieving sustainability goals through the BMCS, using data to increase energy and resource efficiency at the Opera House. His passion for sustainability is now in full flight.
“It is encouraging to see how a heritage building like the Sydney Opera House, one of the most widely recognised buildings in the world, can work with a boundary-pushing company like Honeywell to adapt to the challenges of the 21st century.”
Like Andrew’s, our capacity to drive change and make a difference is multiplied when we collaborate with the right person, company or group of people. As we encounter new societal challenges that affect many aspects of how we live our lives, you don’t necessarily need to choose a ‘career in sustainability’ to be part of the solution. If we are spending a third of our adult life at work, why not look for opportunities to bring about positive and lasting change in whichever career we may end up in?
“That’s what I love about working at the Opera House – we are always working together to push boundaries, continually asking ourselves what we can do better. It is exciting work and inspiring to be a part of an organisation that wants to make a difference.”
