Department of Parliamentary Services Annual Report 2011-2012

Global reporting initiative index



Information contained in part 5 of the DPS Annual Report is structured using the core Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) performance indicators as a framework—see
www.globalreporting.org for more information. The GRI is an independent institution that provides a sustainability reporting framework allowing suitable benchmarking.

DPS has reported against GRI indicators relating to its specific functions since
2003–04, in separate stand-alone environmental performance reports. For 2011–12, DPS has extended its coverage of GRI indicators to include economic. social and governance performance information.

Previous reports are available on the Parliament House website at the following address: http://www.aph.gov.au/dps/building/EMS/EM_Perfomance.htm.
