A10 Triple bottom line report (Appendix 4)

The ACT Government is committed to sustainable government operations. The ACT Government's framework for sustainability is laid out in People, Place, Prosperity, which uses a triple bottom line approach to sustainability, recognising the interdependence of social, economic and environmental wellbeing.

An essential element of sustainability is transparent reporting. Table A10.1 below compares the Directorate performance in 2010-11 and 2009-10. The table also provides the percentage change from 2009-10 to 2010-11.

Notes:
a. The results for the environment element are based on four central office sites at 220 Northbourne Avenue in Braddon, Hedley Beare Centre for Teaching and Learning in Stirling, former Higgins Primary School Annex and the Fyshwick Annex. The Directorate is looking to expand this data in the future to include schools.

b. The decrease in water consumption in 2010-11 from 2009-10 was due to one burst water main and two burst water pipes being replaced at the former Higgins Primary School.

c. The provision of workstation assessments for staff has been ongoing by the Directorate but not specifically recorded. During the 200910 reporting period workstation assessments were available through the Safety First Physiotherapy program and assessments conducted were tracked and reported.
