The Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) has adopted a range of measures designed to reduce its greenhouse emissions. These include:

  1. separating and recycling office paper, cardboard and other office waste

  2. mindful management of energy and water usage in ACMA offices

  3. emphasising low power consumption and energy efficiency when buying office equipment

  4. introducing electronic records management to reduce the use of paper records

  5. using 80 per cent recycled Australian paper.

  6. actively reducing air travel by ACMA executives and staff by using video conferencing more frequently.

The ACMA complies with the Energy Reporting Requirements for Government Agencies under the Energy Efficiency in Government Operations (EEGO) Policy and recently completed the ANAO Green Procurement & Sustainable Office Management Online Survey.

To further improve its environmental awareness and practices, the ACMA will join the Government Agencies Environment Network (GAEN).
