Sustainability success continues

It's the New Year, and that goes hand-in-hand with improved initiatives at RAAFA, particularly in the area of sustainability.

And so, we are very excited to let you know that last year, RAAFA's property and sustainability team applied for funding from the WA government, through its Charge Up program. As a result of a successful application, RAAFA is now set to install Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations at its villages at Merriwa, Meadow Springs, and also the central support office in South Perth.

Phil Bedford, RAAFA's General Manager of Property and Sustainability, explains that despite the initiative being limited to three sites initially, planning has already commenced for further charging stations in the next round of funding applications.

"I think many people would agree that EV charging is the clean, renewable, cost-effective solution for the future," says Phil.

"Our new charging stations highlight the importance of environmental awareness in our RAAFA communities, and also enable us to demonstrate our commitment to, and take responsibility for, the effects which our business activities have on the environment.

"In announcing this news, I'd like to sincerely thank RAAFA's property and sustainability team for their hard work on this project, which has ultimately achieved such a positive outcome."

RAAFA's charging stations will operate around the clock and are specifically intended for residents, staff, volunteers, families of residents and authorised visitors.

In order to access the charging stations, individuals must bring their own cable, in addition to downloading the specialised phone app, Charge Hub.

RAAFA's CEO, Michelle Fyfe, adds that she is delighted to mark this significant accomplishment with the RAAFA community.

"I'm thrilled to be able to celebrate this achievement with everyone, as we move forward in a future-focused way, which takes into consideration both our social and environmental impact and responsibility," she says.

More detail will follow as the installation of the charging stations is completed and they are ready for use.
