PURPOSE This Environmental Sustainability Plan (ESP) outlines TAFE NSW – South Western Sydney’s environmental sustainability program for a 3 year period from 2012 until 2015, incorporating environmental objectives, targets and management strategies.

SCOPE The ESP covers the properties, colleges and activities under the direct ownership and/or control of TAFE NSW – South Western Sydney Institute (SWSi). The Plan also supports collaboration with contractors and organisations associated with SWSi.

CONTEXT This Plan fits under a framework of environmental policies and plans of Government and TAFE SWSi (see Figure 1). On 7 December 2009, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) endorsed a National Green Skills Agreement. The Green Skills Agreement seeks to build the capacity of the vocational education and training (VET) sector to deliver the skills for sustainability required in the workplace that will enable individuals, businesses and communities to adjust to, and prosper in, a sustainable, low-carbon economy. In 2010, a Green Skills Agreement Implementation Plan was prepared to progress the objectives of the Agreement. The NSW 2021 Plan, with its strategy to “strengthen our local environment and communities”, provides overarching direction for sustainability planning. Subsidiary plans relating to this include the NSW Government Sustainability Policy, which set targets and strategies for the NSW Government to lead by example in sustainable water use, reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy, waste and fleet management and sustainable purchasing. Supporting the NSW Sustainability Policy are additional plans, including: •

NSW Government Energy Management Policy



NSW Government's Metropolitan Water Plan



NSW Waste Recycling and Purchasing Policy and



Cleaner NSW Government Fleet initiative.

The NSW Government's commitment to better energy, water and materials management and reduced waste production is reflected in the Department of Education & Communities (DEC) plans and resource targets including: •

a planned reduction of energy consumption by 5%



a planned reduction in water consumption by 15%



new waste contracts to include recycling and an increase of recycled content in DEC paper purchases, and



e-waste managed through equipment supply contracts.

To further guide sustainability actions at SWSi, DEC has developed the following plans: •

DEC Energy Management Plan;



DEC Water Management Plan; and



DEC Waste Recycling and Purchasing Policy Plan.

Environmental and sustainability education in DEC was guided by the Learning for Sustainability: NSW Environmental Education Plan 2007-10. TAFE NSW developed the TAFE NSW Education for Sustainability (EfS) Plan 2007-2010, which has now been superseded by the 2012 TAFE NSW EfS Priority Statement. Within SWSi, various overarching policies sit above this Plan, and identify the need for the Institute to operate in a sustainable manner. SWSi Strategy 2015 is TAFE SWSi's strategic direction for the three years to 2015. It provides a framework for future Institute business focus and operations, as well as a framework for positioning the organisation to respond to key changes in the vocational education and training environment. SWSi Strategy 2015 has as one of its five Key Focus Areas to “support our region’s adaptation to climate change”. Supporting the Strategy is the SWSi Annual Plan 2012, which identifies some key initiatives on sustainability, environmental management and training partnerships in sustainability with industry and the community. SWSi recognises that it has a responsibility to conduct its activities in an environmentally and socially responsible manner and to provide a quality environment in which to work and study. In early 2012, the Institute adopted its Environmental Commitment Statement to outline its intentions towards becoming more environmentally sustainable. In 2012, the Institute’s Board of Directors (BoD) also approved an Environmental Policy (Appendix 1). The Policy states the Institute’s commitment to environmental sustainability, prevention of pollution and continuous environmental improvement. Since the adoption of the Filename: C:\Users\doconnell7\Documents\SWSi Work\Committees\SRG\ESP\SWSi Environmental Sustainability Plan 2012_2015 v9 FINAL Edition.docx Date reviewed: 23/10/2012 Document Owner: Environmental Sustainability Page 5 of 17 Printed copies of the document are not controlled. Please refer to this link for the current version.

Environmental Policy in early 2012, a concise program of initiatives was prepared and has been steadily implemented across the Institute. To better satisfy Government policy and the Institute’s strategic direction, a document containing environmental objectives, targets and strategies needed to be prepared and is contained within this report. This Environmental Sustainability Plan provides the necessary strategies to enable the organisation to satisfy all of the above policy requirements in sustainability.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY PLAN This Environmental Sustainability Plan (ESP) provides the mechanism for the implementation of the Institute’s Environmental Policy and Commitment and aims to: • • • •

identify environmental issues and set priorities set overarching environmental objectives establish environmental targets and key performance indicators, and allocate responsibility and timeframes for action.

The ESP details strategies to be implemented within the 3-year period 2012-2015, aimed at the continual improvement of environmental performance in the following key areas: 1. Environmental Management 2. Education for Sustainability (Green Skills) 3. Energy & Carbon Emissions 4. Water 5. Waste & Recycling 6. Biodiversity & Grounds 7. Transport 8. Buildings 9. Purchasing & Consumption The ESP has been divided into these nine sections, with each section comprising environmental objectives, targets and performance indicators. An Action Plan for achieving the Institute’s targets is outlined below with a set of strategies, responsibilities and timeframes allocated. The ESP will be managed and reviewed annually by the Institute’s existing Sustainability Reference Group (SRG) and results reported to the Institute’s Board of Directors (BoD). Key performance targets for the main indicators have been projected to the end of 2014 and are shown in Appendix 2.
