ANZ measures energy performance in all 34 markets in which we operate through a central online environmental reporting system.
We aim to minimise the use of resources in its operations through the efficient consumption of energy within our buildings, including commercial offices, retail branches and data centres. We also encourage staff uptake of technology such as video conferencing to reduce travel associated emission levels.
To ensure that we are meeting this energy reduction goal ANZ has adopted a framework of:
- reviewing energy consumption within its operations
- developing a plan to reduce energy consumption
- funding and implementing energy efficiency opportunities
- monitoring the outcomes of energy efficiency projects.
ANZ meets the requirements of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (Cth) (NGERS) which imposes reporting obligations where energy production, use, or greenhouse gas emissions trigger specified thresholds.
We also disclose our environmental performance via the CDP (formerly known as Carbon Disclosure Project).
