The Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) is committed to becoming more sustainable. We focus on sustainability in three important, related areas: our people, our environment and our finances.
At FaHCSIA, we aim to incorporate sustainable practices into our day-to-day business activities. We set ambitious goals and targets for sustainability, supported by well-planned policies, processes and actions.
The 2009-10 Sustainability Report offers us the opportunity to celebrate our successes. It also offers us the opportunity to learn from the challenges we have faced and to share these important lessons with others. This year, one of our main challenges was operating with reduced funding. We have had to be more efficient and effective, and find ways to do more with less.
