At Lumen, reducing environmental impact goes beyond our designs and built form - it is intrinsic to operations. Office space is currently powered by 100% renewable energy generated on site with excess exported to the grid. Virgin paper use is minimised, that used is 100% recycled content and all waste paper, packaging and consumables are recycled. Being close to the Adelaide CBD means many meetings can be reached without the use of a car.
Sustainability isn't something we expect solely for government to address,
it requires all of us to do what we can.
