STC has continued its arrangement with Cenitex to rent workstations in its Melbourne CBD office in 2022-23. The Cenitex office environment is paperless and STC undertakes sustainable procurement practices and initiatives to reduce the environmental impacts including:

  • Paperless office environment
  • Leveraging the State Purchasing Contract (SPC) for large site energy consumption, which includes the provision of renewable energy certificates, noting a significant reduction in office energy consumption due to staff working from home
  • The building has a six-star energy efficient NABERs (National Australian Built Environment Rating System)
  • Banned the use of single-use plastics in the provision of office supplies to the new building, in support of the goal to phase out single-use plastics across the Victorian Public Service by February 2022.
