The focus of environmental management activities at Parliament House is to reduce energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, water use and waste generation. DPS demonstrates its commitment in this area through the following Environmental Management Policy.
Small actions by people using Parliament House facilities can make a difference, such as getting into the routine of switching off lights and monitors if not needed; recycling paper and printing double sided. Advice on these actions is provided through this website.
Improving the environmental impacts of Parliament House’s engineering systems, services and facilities requires more than changing work practices and behaviour, so DPS has made it a formal requirement to assess environmental impacts in projects, contracting and procurement practices.
Please direct environmental queries and suggestions to the DPS Environment Mailbox.
