Lendlease Australian Supplier Innovation Award Winner 2022
16 August 2022
Grasshopper Environmental was delighted to accept the Lendlease Australian Supplier Innovation Award 2022 at an event held earlier this month. This Award recognises Grasshopper’s commitment to delivering genuine and tangible outcomes for the local Aboriginal communities and the environment, through its joint venture partnership with Bungarribee Connection.
Australian based Lendlease employees were asked to nominate suppliers that they’ve worked with over the last 12 months that have demonstrated outstanding work across five award categories – Safety, Innovation, Sustainability, Digital and First Nations. The nominations were then reviewed and assessed on a score based system by an internal Lendlease employee judging panel.
Grasshopper Environmental was awarded with the Lendlease Australian Supplier Innovation Award 2022. This was based on Grasshopper’s joint venture (JV) partnership with Bungarribee Connection, which demonstrates the company’s commitment to delivering genuine and tangible outcomes for local Aboriginal communities and the environment.
The Grasshopper Environmental Bungarribee Connection JV is run by local Aboriginal people for local Aboriginal people. It engages industry leaders in construction that have a strong emphasis on sustainability and the circular economy, in order to deliver industry leading sustainable outcomes for waste as well as advancement, empowerment, and opportunity for Indigenous communities.
Katie Bounds, Key Account Manager and Elise Martin, Business Development Manager, at Grasshopper Environmental (pictured left to right) attended the Lendlease Australian Supplier Awards event earlier this month to accept the award. Bounds said;
“The Grasshopper Environmental Bungarribee Connection JV is proud to be providing Lendlease with Recycling and Resource Management services for the Martin Place project, and we’re honoured to have received the 2022 Innovation Award in recognition of the development and execution of the Joint Venture with Bungarribee Connection. Our partnership with Bungarribee Connection provides a unique opportunity for Lendlease to exceed project sustainability outcomes while making a real social impact. We look forward to extending our partnership with Lendlease and showcasing this JV and its outcomes.”
