This year we have demonstrated a further continuation of our downward trend in Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Our purchased electricity usage has continued to lower, as has our petrol usage. Despite our active fleet
of vehicles, we have focussed on using e10 over standard petrol where possible, which produces less greenhouse gases in comparison.
In 2010 Mercy Services became a member of the NSW Government’s Sustainability Advantage Program. The Sustainability Advantage Program helps organisations understand sustainability and strengthen their environmental performance. The Program is a business support service from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH). Mercy Services is committed to strengthen its environmental performance through collaboration with OEH. This collaboration has enabled Mercy Services to assess and address its sustainability issues.
Mercy Services established an Environmental Responsibility Fund for donations specifically to help us buy the equipment and services needed to reduce our impact on the environment.
This fund has raised $3,990 so far. You might want to click here for more information or to make a contribution towards our environmental initiatives.
