We aim to minimise the impact of our day-to-day operations on the environment and support the principles of the sustainable development in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. We employ a range of practical strategies to manage waste and be energy efficient, including:
- sustainable purchasing strategy when procuring high-use office supplies as well as exclusive use of 100% carbon-neutral and recyclable print paper
- signage around our offices to direct employees to recycling points and waste services, with one recycling bin for every 20 staff members
- participation in initiatives such as printer toner cartridge, battery and felt pen recycling programs
- reduced power consumption strategies, including using waterless toilet facilities where appropriate and motion sensor lighting arrangements to reduce lighting after prolonged periods of inactivity.
Our Canberra office recognises the Commonwealth’s Green Lease Schedule guidelines and is in one of Canberra’s top-rated energy efficient buildings, according to the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS).
