Taking Sustainability Seriously
Swiss Re: 'the economic costs of such
[natural] disasters threaten to double to
$150 billion a year in 10 years, hitting
insurers with $30-40 billion in claims, or the
equivalent of one World Trade Centre attack
annually.'

   Taking Sustainability Seriously
Citigroup: first multinational bank to prohibit investment in any
   extractive industry in primary tropical forests and place severe
   restrictions on destructive investment in all endangered
   ecosystems worldwide.
Citigroup's New Environmental Initiatives requires:
• documentation of legality prior to investment in any logging or
   logging-related projects
• auditing of climate-changing investments
• investment of significant capital in renewable energy projects.

      The Monash Experience
Three FTE staff were directly employed in environmental
            improvement and compliance.

Almost 200 staff were involved in working on office based
behavioural change and serving as members of relevant
                       committees.

 Over $250,000 per annum was spent on environmental
improvement and compliance, including direct staff costs
        (the three FTE) and capital expenditure.
