Environment

We have an ongoing commitment to developing an environmentally sustainable future at all of our facilities.

Our Vision 2015 -2019 reinforces this commitment to become an organisation that uses resources responsibly, respectfully and in a sustainable manner.

We are committed to maintaining the initiatives implemented as part of our Environmental Sustainability Strategy (2011- 2015). We continue to focus on supporting programs and providing funding to reduce waste, water, energy and greenhouse emissions and ensure compliance with current and emerging legislation.

Some of these initiatives have included:

  • promoting recycling
  • purchasing high efficiency equipment
  • providing travel incentives for our caregivers to use alternative methods of transport to and from work
  • installing LED lighting at our facilities.

All of our divisions complete National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting, which is a mandatory report detailing our greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption.
