Melbourne Business School
Melbourne Business School, an integral part of the University of Melbourne, has undertaken a significant transition by upgrading its exit signs from traditional disposable electric-battery signs to advanced Smarterlite Environmental Exit Signs, the Hyperion Hybrid Exit Sign. Notably, in 2021, Melbourne Business School held the distinction of being Australia's top-ranked business school and was recognised among the world's top 30 business schools.
As part of this transition, outdated disposable electric-battery exit signs were systematically replaced with Smarterlite’s Hybrid Exit Signs across the student and staff areas at Melbourne Business School’s Carlton campus. The Hyperion Exit Sign is an environmental exit sign, free from the vulnerabilities associated with disposable electric batteries, and boasts enhanced reliability and energy efficiency, surpassing its electric-battery counterparts.
This initiative promises Melbourne Business School not only increased safety but also a reduction in operational costs and e-waste, aligning with their commitment to a more sustainable and cost-effective future.
The upgrade to Smarterlite’s Environment Exit Signs will deliver an estimated $308,000 of savings, reduce carbon emissons by 95 tonnes, reduce eWaste by 1.5 tonnes and reduce electricity use by 74%.
Melbourne Business School’s selection of Smarterlite exit signs demonstrates their commercial viability.
