How the activities of, and the administration of legislation by, the department
accorded with the principles of ESD – section 516A(6)(a)

Our advice to the Prime Minister takes into account the impact on the environment
and the community, and includes environmental impact statements where biodiversity
and ecological integrity is identified as being at risk.

How the outcomes specified for the department in an Appropriations Act
contribute to ESD (see paragraph 516A(6)(b))

As highlighted above, our advice takes into consideration ecologically sustainable
development where there is a potential risk to the environment. This is achieved
through consultation with relevant Commonwealth, state, industry and
community groups.

The effect of the department’s activities on the environment (see paragraph 516A(6)(c))

Our building at One National Circuit was built in accordance with the Australian
Building Greenhouse Rating (ABGR) scheme (now the National Australia Built
Environment Rating System (NABERS)) to have an energy rating of 4.5 stars. For the
period July 2010 to June 2011, One National Circuit was awarded 4.5 star NABERS
rating for both base building and whole of building. The NABERS assessment for
water efficiency was also 4.5 stars.

Environmental management system
Our continual commitment to the environment is reflected through our Environmental
Management System (EMS), based on the Australian Standard AS NZ ISO 14001.
This system identifies key aspects of our business that impact upon the environment,
and provides for a range of initiatives to monitor and alleviate the impact.

Energy usage at One National Circuit
During 2010–11, our tenant light and power energy usage increased by 19 per cent,
while our base building electricity decreased by 3 per cent and our base building
natural gas consumption reduced by 16 per cent.

Carbon footprint
In 2009, an initiative was undertaken to assess our carbon footprint for 2007–08
and 2008–09 in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, as reported in
the 2008–09 annual report. In 2009–10, in accordance with the National Greenhouse
Accounts Factors issued by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency
in July 2010, a different methodology has been used to calculate the carbon footprint.
This has resulted in an outcome that is not readily comparable to previous years.
The outcome of both the 2009–10 and 2010–11 carbon footprint assessments are
shown at figure 11.14.
