    Cancer Council SA is committed to introducing changes to its business practices in order to improve the sustainability of its operations in both financial and environmental terms.

    Cancer Council SA is actively involved in measuring and reducing our carbon footprint from all our business operations. The organisation has implemented a web-based system that tracks our head office energy and resource usage and allows us to measure and compare usage across our business with the aim of reducing usage and waste.

    In late 2011 we installed electrical metering equipment on all our head office switchboards that provide direct and automatic data feeds to our web based energy tracking system. Future plans are to install monitoring equipment across our accommodation properties to enable us to have a greater understanding of our usage and thus increase our ability to manage the resource.

    Future opportunities exist for the introduction of solar hot water to offset existing electric hot water systems within the organisation and other renewable energy sources where financially and environmentally feasible.

    Equipment upgrades in the Cancer Council Lodges (televisions, fridges, air conditioning, etc) consider both the environmental and financial cost in decision making.

    Waste is sorted at source to minimise land fill and to maximise the proportion of waste that it recycled reducing both greenhouse emissions and the financial affect of Carbon Pricing.

    Future contracts for services will include an environmental assessment as part of the review process.
