Manufacturing substantially beats government, says major industry report

A new report released by leading independent standards company BSI Group Australia and New Zealand reveals that the government and services sector is substantially lagging behind manufacturing in the provision of many sustainability practices.

The report, ‘Corporate Environmental & Sustainability Governance Survey for 2013’ released by BSI incorporating NCSI is based on responses from 19 different industry sectors, including heavy industrial, food, resources, construction, the government and the service industry, with manufacturing representing more than 50% of the respondents. 

According to the biannual survey, 100% of manufacturers indicated they have environmental and sustainability policies in place, and also conducted energy audits, and implemented energy efficient processes.
