Environmental management

The department is committed to carrying out our business in an environmentally responsible and resource efficient way.

The department’s environmental management system aligns to international standard ISO 14001:2004 and assists with the management and reporting on greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, resource use and waste arising from building operations, motor vehicle and air travel, ICT and stationery supplies.

The department is dedicated to achieving the environmental targets set by the government for energy use, resource consumption and waste, and supports the mandatory environmental standards for application in procurement processes.

Supporting these measures drives resource efficiency and innovation in supply chains and across industry.

See Appendix I for more information about the department’s contribution to ecologically sustainable development and environmental performance.
