Sustainable Technologies

Our world is changing rapidly. Technology is changing the way we live and the way we do business. It was inconceivable just a few years ago that Australian electricity generating companies would be looking at the prospect of closing down generators due to the take up of solar power, that mobile phones, tablets, and cloud computing would forever change the way we do business.

Businesses are under increasing social pressures to be clean, green and sustainable. It makes good business sense to fund these assets rather than tie up valuable working capital. At AFN we’re firmly committed to helping our clients build a sustainable future.
