Natural Resources and Efficiency
Power and Fuel usage
GYEA powers its office space entirely from natural resources acquired via its large solar array system and as required when the sun is not shining or at night its power wall reserves.
Over the past 2 years GYEA has not incurred power usage from the 'grid' in the provision of its services.
The additional benefit of maintaining power reserves is that business services are not interrupted during unplanned power shortages or natural disasters. We share all of these resources and benefits with our affiliated businesses.
Surplus feed in tariffs over the period of each financial year cover the costs pertaining to our phones and internet meaning we literally operate without most overheads, resulting in us being able to offer mates rates on service fees.
As pre COVID, post COVID we will also endeavour to be onsite and mobile instead of confined to the office.
With this in mind all of our business vehicles have their own accolades pertaining to carbon emissions and therefrom their footprint. GYEA maintains a combination of the following to enable its personnel to be mobile in the most fuel efficient and carbon efficient manner possible:
Fuel efficient and Hybrid motor vehicles using a mean 4.9L per 100 kilometres.
Honda Grom motor cycles using 2.1L per 100 kilometres.
Segway ninebot scooters.
On average over the past 4 years for every 100 kilometres travelled locally and within the service area, our average fuel usage has been around 3.1L per 100 kilometres or around $24.00 per week. Another overhead reduced for cost effectiveness.
Jmiboomba / Tamborine / Yarrabilba
With GYEA being based in Yarrabilba QLD, it aims to allocate between 2% and 5% of its assessable net profit back into the local community it is a part of as direct initiatives and supplementarily aims to spend in the local community for everyday business, household and lifestyle expenditure.
This percentage is correlated to the % of service fees charged on business services as a percentage of service fees derived on business turnovers within.
Examples of past allocations include sponsorship of the Yarrabilba Cane Toads and Mustangs Football Clubs.
