The former Department FaHCSIA Sustainability Reports assess the former Department's performance against social, environmental and economic indicators.
These indicators have been selected from A guide to reporting against social indicators, A guide to reporting against environmental indicators, and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines.
Triple Bottom Line Reports
Prior to 2005-06, each financial year since 2002-03, the department produced a Triple Bottom Line Report setting out its commitment to, and results in, improving the social, environmental, and economic aspects of departmental operations. In 2005-06 the report was re-named the Sustainability Report to reflect current terminology and to emphasise the underlying principle of the report.
The 2002-03 Report was the first report of its kind for any Australian Government Department.
