Ombudsman

Ecologically-sustainable development

Under section 516A(3) of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, the Directors of the AIC must ensure a report prepared under the provisions of the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 complies with the reporting provisions (ss. 6) of the EPBC Act.

The AIC has continued its commitment during the past year to improving its energy efficiencies in order to fulfil its obligations under the EPBC Act.

Measures include:

  • active recycling of paper, plastic and bottles and computer toner
  • use of recycled paper in all multi-function devices
  • installation of equipment that incorporates energy-saving devices such as desktop computers, photocopiers, water-saving showerheads, dishwashers and printers
  • use of sensor lighting and air conditioning management systems
  • water conservation—toilets with half-flush systems
  • reductions in consumable supplies through reduced printing of material available on the internet and in electronic databases, email and document management systems, leading to lower consumption of paper, toners and energy.

The AIC is committed to practices that assist ecologically-sustainable development and improve environmental performance. It does not administer any legislation or have any appropriations directly related to these issues.

During the year, the AIC continued to develop its e-publications program which reduced printing. Trends & Issues papers and Technical and Background Papers are ‘online only’ publications. Monitoring reports and the Research and Public Policy series are being moved to a print-on-demand model. These measures have resulted in a reduction in the use of consumable supplies. In 2011–12 all publications from late 2011 will be downloadable as e-publications. Hardcopy reports will only be available via a ‘print on demand’ scheme.

The AIC building is now part-powered by solar electricity, as panels were installed during June 2011 which will see significant savings and a better environmental outcome.

Advertising and market research

The AIC did not engage any vendors for advertising or market research in 2009–10.
