Please comment on your company's efforts in this area.
I believe there are policies in place, but I have not seen them actively pursued.
The new office building planned has taken into consideration the environmental impact.
There are environmental policies in place, like green waste recycling, paper saving measures etc.
The Federal Government has a number of initiatives in place to reduce the carbon footprint of the APS. I understand the new DSS office building scheduled to begin construction in 2015 will address the energy efficiency issues of the current space in Tuggeranong Office Park.
The department encourages its employees to recycle and use compost bins. It also encourages staff to bike, or use public transport to get to work.
