Green initiatives

Green transport 

Downsizing our fleet

We have replaced larger petrol-powered sedans with smaller and greener motor pool vehicles with fuel-efficient diesel engines. As technology and vehicle choices evolve, we continue to review and select greener alternatives for our fleet.

End of trip facilities

End of trip facilities specifically designed for cyclists are available for use at both Toowoomba and Springfield, complementing the cycle paths throughout the campus. These facilities provide secure storage for bicycles and shower and toilet facilities. They are eco-friendly and incorporate technologies such as solar power for hot water and electricity, and rainwater harvesting.

Green purchasing

In line with our purchasing and procurement policy we regularly monitor and review our acquisition of all goods and services, and our disposal of waste. Preference is given to items produced in ways which cause least harm to the environment and will generate the least waste material.
