We have made every effort to become a 'paperless' office, within a profession that relies so much on paper.
The Perth office has a 5-star energy rating, and the Sydney office has a 6-star rating (the maximum). We have a strong recycling system, and are encouraged to go paperless (i.e. avoid printing) whenever possible.
Reducing colour printing.
A very large amount of printing is done but there are initiatives and pushes to reduce printing and recycling bins in place. Unsure about power and utilities usage.
The firm, and Barangaroo, places a big value on being green and reducing our footprint where possible. This does not negatively impact your daily work, but enables you to cycle or walk conveniently to the changing rooms, reuse mugs and glasses, and recycle appropriately at every turn
I understand the office is very highly rated when it comes to energy efficiency, and has a number of responsibilities as part of being in the Barangaroo precinct
Move to tap-only printing and active recycling
Unaware of any specific efforts in the Melbourne office.
Separate bins for recyclables, compost/organic and landfill; lights are on sensor timers and will turn off when nobody is in the office
6-star energy rating for Barangaroo
