embarking on the good practices and gauging staff commitment,
we accomplished a significant reduction of paper consumption
in 2003 of 5.9 % compared to the previous year. Electricity
consumption was not measurable for most of our offices because
they are situated in multi-user buildings. We observed an
increase in energy use in our Guardian House offices, mainly
a result of refitting out work of the respective floors.

at DSD Guardian House offices
In committing to saving natural
resources, we target to reduce paper consumption by
5% and power consumption in the office by 3% by 2004/05
compared against 2002/03 levels.
Energy efficiency measures of our
sewage pumping and sewage treatment work and the work
targets are reported in earlier sections of this report.
