Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services54 ACH IEVEM EN TS Sustainability The department is committed to responsible business practises which are environmentally and economically sustainable and works to identify measures to improve sustainability. This commitment is given prominence in the Strategic Plan 2016-2018 through the strategic action to explore innovative and environmentally beneficial service options. All-of-Government PRINTER DEVICE MANAGEMENT REVIEW DCIS has undertaken a review of printers and multifunction devices (MFDs) with the intent to reduce the printing footprint across government. The goal is to reduce the number of printing devices in the Northern Territory Government network from a ratio of 16 printers per 100 workstations to a more manageable 10 printers per 100 workstations. This initiative has required extensive work with agencies to change work practices and demonstrate benefits. The reduction of printers per workstations has reduced the amount of carbon emissions, printer paper and consumables. Additionally, suppliers are now required to dispose of old equipment in accordance with the Hazardous Waste (Regulation of Exports and Imports) Act 1989 (Cth) and the National Government Waste Reduction and Purchasing Guidelines. A reduction of 60 printing devices was achieved in 2016-17 and work will continue on this initiative to seek further improvements in the printer ratio. NT FLEET In May 2017, NT Fleet became an accredited member of Tyre Stewardship Australia. As a participant in the Tyre Stewardship Scheme, NT Fleet supports the objectives of the scheme to increase resource recovery and recycling and minimise the environmental, health and safety impacts of end-of-life tyres generated in Australia. To do this NT Fleet commits to: dealing transparently and ethically with others involved in the tyre supply chain, including consumers promoting the scheme to the community, other businesses and organisations, including through the development and implementation of an individual action plan using the schemes branding and logo and adhere to the conditions that apply to that use complying with relevant laws and practices, including those that apply to the environment and work health and safety cooperating with surveys that are undertaken from time to time eliminating disposal of end-of-life tyres to landfill (except where no viable alternative is available and subject to state and territory legislation; for example, in rural and remote areas where appropriate recycling facilities are not available, or transportation costs are prohibitive). NT Fleets Vehicle Fleet Policy specifies maximum fuel consumption to minimise carbon emissions into the environment as follows: 8.5 litres / 100 km for urban use pool vehicles and Executive Contract Officer vehicles. 10 litres / 100 km for non-four wheel drive light commercial vehicles. 13 litres / 100 km for four wheel drive vehicles. Fuel consumption across the fleet has exceeded these targets, with the following results achieved: 7.2 litres / 100 km for urban use pool vehicles and Executive Contract Officer vehicles. 8.6 litres / 100 km for non-four wheel drive light commercial vehicles. 9.5 litres / 100 km for four wheel drive vehicles. 2015-16 2016-17 Printing devices per 100 workstations 14.51 12.98
