Environmental Statement

Australian Images is proud of the steps we have taken to reduce our impact on the environment. Our environmental initiatives include:

Resource usage:

We follow the golden rule of Reduce - Reuse - Recycle throughout our business operations.

Wherever possible, we maximise the use of electronic files and transmission systems, reducing vehicle usage, paper and consumable consumption.

We use recycled paper and refill our printer cartridges for all our office printing.

Reduce Reuse Recycle
   

Energy:

Our business premises is designed to be as energy efficient as possible, maximising natural light and minimising the use of artificial heating and air conditioning systems.

Through the progressive replacement of inefficient appliances together with other energy saving measures, we have reduced our gross electricity consumption by around 25% since 2005.

In 2010 we installed an Aussie Solar PV solar system, generating approximately 35% of our total electicity usage as at 2010.

These two measures combined have reduced our C02 emissions from electricity by over 50% since 2005.

Vehicles:

We use efficient, low emission vehicles equipped with common-rail diesel injection and liquid LPG injection, which has resulted in a 30% reduction (approximately) in our vehicle CO2 emissions since 2005.

Beginning in 2012, we began offsetting our vehicle emissions through the Australian non-profit groups Greenfleet and 15 Trees.

We encourage and practise responsible 4WD usage, to ensure our vast and beautiful country remains for future generations to enjoy.

Carbon Offsets:

In addition to our vehicle carbon offsets, we have also fully offset the electricity usage of our website server through Australian hosting provider VentraIP.
