(Question No 1452)
Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, on 14 December 2006:
(1) In relation to page 125 of the 2005-06 ACT Policing annual report which stated that as the AFP is a Commonwealth agency the ACT Greenhouse Strategy does not apply, can the Minister require through a purchase agreement that ACT Policing comply with an ACT Greenhouse Strategy;
(2) Has the Minister attempted to make such a requirement; if not, why not;
(3) Will the Minister consider requiring through a purchase agreement that ACT Policing comply with an ACT Greenhouse Strategy in the future.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) No, I cannot require ACT Policing under the Police Arrangement to comply with an ACT Greenhouse Strategy.
As ACT Policing is an arm of the AFP, a Commonwealth agency, the ACT Greenhouse Strategy does not apply. I am advised that the AFP does, however, in the interests of the environment, and fiscal responsibility minimise energy usage wherever possible. As such, the AFP operates within the Commonwealth Government's "Energy Efficiency in Government Operations Policy". This policy essentially imposes minimum energy performance standards to improve energy efficiency, and reduce the environmental impact of government operations.
