Citywide develops and implements a range of annual environmental initiatives to promote environmental management among staff and the community. The company also undertakes regular audits to track performance against targets.
A Water Management Plan was completed for our key depots to achieve immediate water savings by installing shower heads, flow restrictors/aerators and other water saving devices. The plan was also designed to report on possible long term solutions, such as water tanks, to guarantee further water savings.
As part of a National Greenhouse and Energy Report (NGER) Group legislative reporting arrangements, we monitor and provide the City of Melbourne with details on Citywide's energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions. These reports are collated by an independent auditor on a quarterly basis.
We have produced a report comparing emissions associated with Greenpave asphalt and hot mix asphalt produced at the Citywide North Melbourne plant, based on over two years of data using a life cycle analysis process. This report also used data from a number of Greenpave environmental studies. The research undertaken confirms that Greenpave offers safety and environmental benefits with performance standards at, or above, those currently available in the Australian market.
