Environment and Sustainability within the Directorate
We received accreditation through the ACT Business Smart Program in 2011 following on from the success of the Land Development Agency which won an award in 2009, and the Canberra Stadium who won the award for Motivation excellence in 2011. This award is given to a business or office that has implemented an effective staff motivation system to improve its waste management.
The program requires an implementation team to conduct simple waste audits, develop a waste management plan, educate staff, and monitor and report on progress.
Benefits to the community is reduced waste disposal costs, impact the the ACT environment and better educated staff enabling an onflow effect to employees home recycling efforts.
