ECOLOGICALLY SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORTING
The AASB and AUASB do not have specific responsibilities in relation to the administration of environmental sustainability legislation.
The nature of the AASB and AUASB’s activities limits the impact of their operations on the environment, however, they are mindful of their responsibilities to minimise negative impacts. Accordingly, the AASB and AUASB have in place policies and procedures designed to minimise environmental impacts by complying with government policies relating to waste, energy and travel.
The principal environmental impact minimisation activities employed are:
- waste management, through a fully commingled and organic recycling program
- energy efficient practises in lighting, air-conditioning and computer use
- limited water use.
Travel restrictions limit meetings to only essential obligations. Teleconferencing and videoconferencing are used whenever possible.
