The Government Resource Efficiency Policy (GREP) provides the framework for our plan to achieve greater resource efficiency, generate cost savings and support environmental protection. The GREP sets targets for NSW general government sector agencies across 10 agency clusters to reduce energy and water use, harmful air emissions and waste. Each financial year, agencies must report on their progress toward achieving their targets in the following:

  • electricity and gas use and expenditure
  • number of energy efficiency projects undertaken and estimated bill savings
  • water use and expenditure
  • top three waste streams by volume and cost of disposal.
