1 MSAENV472B Implement and Monitor Environmentally Sustainable Work Practices Neale Farmer – Coordinator Major Environmental Initiatives – Hunter TAFESession 3: Wednesday 4 June 2014
2 Review of last two (2) sessions Defined SustainabilityDescribed the Unit – MSAENV472BEnvironmental Compliance and Sustainability at Hunter TAFETheory on tools to identify, plan, implement and monitorCase study and activities to practice
3 Today’s Session Recap (5 mins) A couple of case studies related to Hunter TAFE Campuses incl. Water, Electricity, Supply Chain (15 mins)Activity on E block (20mins)Wrap up (5 mins)
5 Your stories please – last 2 weeks? Tools, techniques and processes for:1. ….. Identifying areas for improvement in environmental performance?2. …..Developing plans to make improvements?3. ……Implementing and monitoring improvements in environmental performance?
6 Continuous Improvement Cycle Identify and research area/s for improvement, consult, measure baseline.Set goals, targets, objectivesImplement the improvementMonitor implementation and resultsRevise or adjust planetc
14 Electricity Consumption (kWh) % change from previous year How much electricity does Santa Claus use?Electricity Consumption (kWh) all campuses in the 8 days from Christmas Day to New Year’s Day (2011 to present)YearElectricity Consumption (kWh)% change from previous year2011/12130,4912012/13123,5575.3%reduction2013/14113,9927.7%
16 Energy Management Actions to Date Level 2 Energy Audit – Basden Precinct Newcastle Campus – “payback analysis”Real time monitoring and reporting of electricity useReplacement of T12 fluoro’s with LEDsTimers and automatic shut-downs for lighting, air conditioning, and other equipmentRenewable energy and energy efficient technologyEducation and behaviour change incl. media, activities, and green teams
17 Which 500L Refrigerator?Sub-ZeroWestinghouseShop price$1000$800
21 Which 500L Refrigerator?Sub-ZeroWestinghouseShop price$1000$800Sub-ZeroWestinghouseRunning Cost (10yrs)$614$984The Sub-Zero model is $370 cheaper to run over 10years (that’s $37/year)But the Sub-Zero costs $200 more!Using basic payback analysis it would take $200/$37 = 5.4 years to “pay back” the extra money spent on the Sub-ZeroWhat other factors affect this purchase?

24 Finding Ways to Minimise Resource Use How to measure?How to reduce consumption and/or cut waste?How do you know you’ve made a difference?What Resources?LandBuildingsPlant and MachineryRaw MaterialsLabour
25 Activity – Worksheet – E Block 2-3 groups select a room nearby to consider for this exercise eg. classroom, lab, officeIdentify activities carried out, resources used, how they’re measured and how to implement and measure improved practices
27 Some considerations? Engineering controls / new technology Operational controlsAdministrative controlsSupply chain managementStaff engagementMonitoring and reporting
28 Recap on Final Session (4 June) Consider sustainability – Triple Bottom Line and beyondIf you can’t measure it, you can’t manage itIt’s a journey – but you need to have a vision, strategies, actions and resources to make it happenStart thinking holistically eg. product life cycle, payback or return on investment etcBe prepared to ask lots of questions and do some simple maths.It starts and ends with you
