Goals and targets
Greenhouse - as part of the Australian Technology Network of universities, we are striving for a 30% reduction on 2007 levels by 2020/21. To help achieve this, targets to increase the amount of renewable energy both on campus and off-site where feasible.
Energy saving – $9 million was spent over three years installing new energy efficiency technology such as sensor and LED lighting, airconditioning upgrades, and new meters. Overall target to decrease energy intensity (GJ/m2 GFA) annually.
Water - continually reduce water consumption each year compared to the previous year, and achieve an annual increase in the use of recycled water each year.
Waste and recycling – recycle 80% of general waste (diversion from landfill).
Community engagement - we have a range of sustainability engagement targets set for each year incorporating numbers of students and staff participating in sustainability events, engagement on social media, etc.
