At ERC Protocol, we are thrilled to announce our latest partnership with the Caravan Industry Association of Australia (CIAA), a significant step forward in promoting environmental sustainability across Australia's caravan and tourism sectors. This collaboration aligns with our mission to empower businesses with practical solutions to achieve Net-Zero.

Why This Partnership Matters

Environmental sustainability is crucial for the future of the caravan industry, our communities, and consumers. With over 6,000 businesses across the entire caravan and camping supply chain (parks, camping, dealerships, manufacturing, retail, trade and many more), CIAA has seen that many businesses in their industry want to do the right thing by the climate. 

This is being driven by increasing expectations from customers, employees, and stakeholders. It is becoming a necessity for good business. 

Addressing the Challenges

But understanding what to do, and who to trust, to meet everyone’s needs has been difficult. 

Many businesses within the caravan industry recognise the need to enhance their environmental efforts but often face hurdles such as high costs, complex sustainability programs, and a lack of clear guidance. This is where our partnership with CIAA comes into play, simplifying the transition to sustainability for their members.

The Role of the ERC Protocol

The ERC Protocol has been adopted nationally by the Australian Tourism Industry Council, which has received support from the Australian Federal government. ERC Protocol is a sector wide solution, providing options suited to small and medium business, and professional services for larger more complex organisation, including those subjects to new climate reporting legislation. 

Key Benefits of the ERC Protocol for CIAA Members:

  • Step-by-Step Guidance: The program offers comprehensive, easy-to-follow stages to help CIAA businesses develop and maintain a climate action plan. 
  • Industry-Wide Standards: Together with CIAA, the program helps to set industry-wide benchmarks that enhance accountability and measure environmental impact effectively. 
  • Resource Efficiency: The program provides tools and strategies that help reduce emissions and reduce operating costs. 
  • Compliance: The program offers services for CIAA businesses that will need to comply with new mandatory climate-related reporting legislation.
  • Educational and Expert Support: There are frequent webinars and personalised support to equip businesses with the necessary knowledge to lead in sustainability. 
  • Transparency and Communication: Clear reporting tools meet the highest standards required for grants, funding, and tender applications, ensuring businesses are prepared and compliant. 
  • Inclusivity: The ERC Protocol is designed to be inclusive, catering to all business sizes—from sole operators to large enterprises—within the caravan industry. 

Our partnership with CIAA marks a significant milestone in our efforts to expand the reach and impact of sustainable business practices across Australia. By providing the caravan industry with the tools and knowledge to succeed in this green transition, the ERC Protocol is helping to shape a sustainable future where the caravan industry not only survives but thrives.
