Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services56 ACH IEVEM EN TS ENERGY USAGE The departments 13 office locations include multiple shared tenancies which make it difficult to provide reliable power usage and carbon emissions data. All buildings have automatic programmed timing for lighting and airconditioning, ensuring these are switched off after hours. The airconditioning in most buildings is set at 22-25 degrees celsius, contributing to the energy efficiency. In addition, staff are encouraged to turn off lighting, computers and equipment when not in use. RECYCLING The department provides recycling bins for confidential documents, paper, cardboard and commingled recycling on each floor, across all buildings. General waste bins are also provided. The department continues to recycle printer toners, cartridges and mobile phones. FLEET MANAGEMENT DCIS has 29 vehicles in the department, representing a FTE:Vehicle ratio of 20:1, which compares very favourably across the Northern Territory Government. All vehicles are registered in NT Fleets Vehicle Booking System for pool use. The average fuel consumption is 7.1L/100km, 1.4L/100km better than current maximum set in the Vehicle Policy Framework. Average CO2 is 174g/km, which is significantly better than the average indicator of 184g/km reported in the Green Vehicle Guide across passenger vehicles. Supporting the Community Departmental staff continued to support a number of charitable and social events over 2016-17, which provided opportunities for staff to gather socially and contribute to the community. These events raised over $1800 for charity and included Superhero Day; Jeans for Jeans Day; Footy Colours Day; R U OK?
