Development-sustainability reporting indicators

(Question No 871)

Mr Smyth asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 21 August 2003:

In relation to sustainability reporting indicators:

(1) Has work begun on the Sustainability Reporting Indicators Report (Labor's alternative to State of the Territory), if so, where is work up to? If no why not?

(2) Will the Community be presented with this Report in 2003, if so, has a deadline been set and what is it? If not, why not?

Mr Quinlan

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Work is progressing on developing an ACT sustainability report. A dedicated team has been established in Chief Minister's Department, to develop the report, which includes members of Policy Group and the Office of Sustainability. This team is liasing with the Sustainability Expert Reference Group.

An issues paper has been developed for release to the community that examines trends in sustainability reporting and poses questions and approaches to assist in the development of an ACT sustainability report. This paper will form the basis of consultation with key stakeholders scheduled for the next two months.

An ACT Towards Sustainability Report will be presented to the community early next year.
