Environmental performance

To minimise our impact now and for future generations, we have a long-term environment action plan. It includes six key targets that we aim to achieve by 2016–17 and is in accordance with ecologically sustainable principles. Using 2011–12 as the base year, we are on track to meet the majority of our targets, including the key target to reduce carbon emissions by 25% by 2016–17.

Based on 2015–16 carbon footprint data (independently validated by our property provider), our 2015–16 result against this target is a 40% reduction in carbon emissions compared to our 2011–12 base year.
