We moved our head office to a 4 star energy rated building with the aim that our total energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by 18%. Similar moves are planned for our Sydney and Brisbane offices.
Motion sensors have been installed to reduce our lighting energy costs by up to 60%.
We’ve switched our office paper to 50% recycled stock which uses 60% less energy and 80% less water to produce, and generates 95% less air pollution.
Follow me printing has been introduced to halve the amount of paper we use. And by proactively recycling paper in all our offices we’ll save 17 trees per tonne & save 4,100 kilowatts of power – that’s enough power to run a home for 6 months.
