Launched in July 2014, GREP (the NSW Government’s Government Resource Efficiency Policy) improves performance in three main areas – energy, water and waste – and also reduces harmful air emissions from government operations. All General Government Sector (GGS) agencies are required to report annually on policy targets, actions and minimum standards, using financial-year data.

This report has been compiled by OEH and is set out using the headings for the measures in the policy:

  • E1: Targets to undertake energy efficiency projects
  • E2: Minimum National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) Energy ratings for offices and data centres
  • E3: Minimum standards for new electrical appliances and equipment
  • E4: Minimum standards for new buildings
  • E5: Identify and enable solar leasing opportunities
  • E6: Minimum fuel efficiency standards for new light vehicles
  • E7: Purchase 6% GreenPower
  • W1: Report on water use
  • W2: Minimum water standards for office buildings
  • W3: Minimum standards for new water-using appliances
  • P1: Report on top three waste streams
  • A1: Air emission standards for mobile non-road diesel plant and equipment
  • A2: Low volatile organic carbon (VOC) surface coatings.
