Environmental performance

This report on ecologically sustainable development and environmental matters is provided in accordance with section 516(a) of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The Institute’s executive and staff are committed to the principles of ecologically sustainable development.

Initiatives to reduce the Institute’s environmental impacts include the following:

  • staff are encouraged to use web-based and teleconference facilities where possible rather than undertaking air travel, which has adverse effects;
  • selected seminars are made available electronically so people do not have to travel to the Institute to hear them;
  • all AIC publications are available online, reducing the need for printing and paper use; and
  • waste generation (resource waste and greenhouse gas emissions) is reduced by recycling paper, cardboard, glass, plastics and metals.

The AIC continues to look for ways to reduce its impact on the environment when undertaking new procurements.
