42 43 Our Performance03 Tourism NT Annual Report 2016-17Tourism NT Annual Report 2016-17 We are committed to sustainability principles across our operations. We aim to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment and encouraged sustainable behaviour throughout practices in our workplace. AIR TRAVEL Overall, kilometres travelled by air by our staff remained steady across all areas of travel: intrastate, interstate and international. We conducted virtual meetings e.g. via Lync, Skype and the video conferencing equipment in our Darwin, Alice Springs and Sydney offices whenever possible. The increase in total kilometres travelled by staff in the 2016-17 year internationally can be attributed to the focus on developing visitation from international markets, such as China and India, and attracting a direct airline service from China to Darwin which was an election commitment of the new Government.
