This preview shows page 84 - 89 out of 101 pages.

Assume that the Sustainability Improvement Report you developed has been implemented, as well as findings from sustainability inspections and reports in other areas of the resort. Sustainability initiatives that have been implemented include: Energy audit and all recommendations implemented including signage about energy use (e.g. switch off lights at night, turn down brightness, turn off taps) The recycling policy was introduced, and three more recycling bins were introduced. Green purchasing policy developed (on the staff intranet, email sent to staff to advise). Green transport policy developed and implemented (on the staff intranet, email sent to staff to advise). Assume also the following sustainability targets: Reduce electricity consumption by 20% within six months. Promote awareness of sustainability initiatives amongst all staff members A staff survey (results provided in Survey Results), as well as an energy audit, have been undertaken.
The results of the energy audit are as follows: Actions implemented: Replaced halogen downlights with energy-efficient downlights and transformers. Connected to natural gas, converting to an energy source with one-third of the greenhouse gas emissions of electricity from coal Replace electric storage water heater with instant solar hot water A replaced air conditioner with a more efficient inverter unit. All of the interventions cost a total of $4,800. Before energy audit: Annual energy bill: $2,415 a year Annual greenhouse emissions: 18 tonnes a year Six months later: Annual energy bill: $2,275 a year Annual greenhouse emissions: 14.3 tonnes a year One year later: Annual energy bill: $1,800 a year
Annual greenhouse emissions: 10.2 tonnes a year Note: Four new staff members were employed in the last six months may account for the increase. Energy targets were not adjusted to account for the new staff. Question.1. Develop a sustainability implementation report. You are required to review the results of the staff survey and the energy statistics provided. Based on your review, develop a short report that outlines: Analysis of staff survey results and achievements against targets (see Appendix.1.) Analysis of energy audit data and achievements against targets Recommendations for additional actions that need to be taken based on the data above. Recommend new efficiency targets Summary of the success of the sustainability policy and procedures based on the analysis. Updates to the company’s Sustainability Policy and Procedures to account for recommended improvements. Use the following Sustainability Implementation Report Template to guide your work.
