AGL Energy is Australia's leading renewable energy business with more than three million customer accounts.
As Australia's largest private owner, operator and developer of renewable generation assets, AGL is taking action towards creating a sustainable energy future for its customers, communities and investors.
The Green Office Program, an AGL initiative set up in 2008, is a part of that sustainable future. The project targets improvements across AGL, including the way the business uses resources and the subsequent impact on the environment. Included in this initiative was a commitment to reduce paper consumption by 10 per cent from the previous financial year– representing a drop from 46.11 tonnes of paper to 41.5 tonnes, or an average of 19.8 kilos of paper per person. In addition to the obvious environmental benefits, using less paper boosts productivity and reduces costs by allowing the print environment to be outsourced. In order to meet its commitments, AGL agreed to implement a rationalisation project and put the project out to tender.
