The key to our success is that we tailor our solutions to the specific needs of each individual project and client.

- Rural and agricultural industries such as the expansion of the Northern Co-operative Meat Company;
- Infrastructure projects including the numerous sections of the Pacific Highway upgrade; and
- Health facilities including the planning and approvals for Nambucca HealthOne, Wauchope Hospital Palliative Care Centre and the Coffs Harbour Health Campus Carpark.
- NSW Department of Planning and Environment approved Environmental Representative and construction Environmental Management Representative roles on large infrastructure development including roads, bridges and dams.
Environmental leaders instill their desire to protect the natural environment into their decision-making and action processes. They inspire a shared vision of the organisation as environmentally-sustainable, creating, maintaining and improving environmental outcomes and values throughout the enterprise. Such values include stewardship, accountability and responsibility. Today, more than ever, we need to protect the environment. GeoLINK recognises the importance of creating sustainable outcomes which meet current needs without compromising those of our future generations. GeoLINK staff encourage high environmental standards on all projects including the GeoLINK business.
GeoLINK was founded on the principles of sustainability, back when sustainability was the exception not the rule. Since then we’ve stayed true to our commitment to reduce our footprint on the earth by researching sustainable work-life models and undertaking cleaner production programs. More recently we obtained accreditation with the Federal Government’s Greenhouse Challenge Plus program which was a key component of its climate change strategy to lead the challenge against global warming.Today we follow sustainable workplace practices aimed at maximising efficiencies and continually reducing our internal resource use in the areas of energy, waste, transport, resources and purchasing. For example, in reusing our waste, all paper waste is reused and when it has reached the end of its cycle is shredded and donated to the pet centre. This is just one of many ways that we strive to ensure our sustainability efforts go beyond the minimum standard requirements.
