The Virtues Project has been honoured by the United Nations during the International Year of the Family as a “model global program for families of all cultures”.

Closely aligned with the LUP Global mission, LUP is now the official environmental arm of the ShareTree Group of companies, which also include the Vative Group (one the leading Six Sigma training organisation in Australia).

Our network partners

PEAK SCIENTIFIC AUSTRALIA

Experts in gas generators 

Peak Scientific is a leading innovator in the design, manufacture and support of high performance gas generators for analytical laboratories. Established in the UK in 1997 near Glasgow (Scotland), where its corporate Headquarters, and high-tech manufacturing and R&D facilities reside, Peak Scientific boasts a significant local presence on every continent. Their forte is in providing their customers with high quality, dependable gas generation solutions tailored to meet their specific laboratory demands

Peak are also very closely aligned with our goal of sustainability as they replace hydrogen and nitrogen gas cylinders that are classified as Dangerous Goods and require ongoing transport of potentially explosive gases, with on-site generators that create the gas from air, meaning less transport, less wasted gas from unused gas in cylinders, and much safer for end users and the environment. Truly a WIN-WIN for all parties involved (how LUP always wants to work)!

Our extended network

ColourSpace

ColourSpace is an arts social enterprise that’s helping organisations look good, feel good, and do good with art.

It does so by providing an arts rental service that sources artworks created by local emerging artists and displays it in corporate, communal, and residential environments.

Our original Co-Founder of SEN / LUP Global, Scott Ko, Founder and Director of ColourSpace, vision is to use art to connect and engage people in a way that technology can’t. In an increasingly technological and data-driven world, ColourSpace is continuously breaking new ground in terms of the impact of art on the community.

GT Recycling

Recyclers of shrink-wrap and plastic

Our relationship with GT Recycling started back in 2015 while we were looking for alternatives to disposing of shrink-wrap, we were put in touch with GT Recycling. GT Recycling was such a pleasure to work with, we couldn’t forget them when we wanted to launch SEN originally! So we invited them to also be a speaker at our launch night to outline the work that GT Recycling was doing to help promote their recycling of plastics and cardboard, an ever increasing global issue since China banned importing recycled plastics. We strongly believe in supporting local initiatives and the wonderful work that companies exactly like GT Recycling do.

What can we say about Pana, except not only an amazing CEO and Founder who lives and acts with the highest social and ethical integrity, but the products truly speak for themselves.
