Resource efficiency trends
Recognising the impacts we have on our natural environment is critical, as are our actions to protect and enhance it now and for the future. This section gives data, trends and, where possible, comparisons to the average within our sector (Australian Higher Education Institutions). The data below is measured per Equivalent Full Time Student Load + Full Time Employees (EFTSL + FTE), which essentially gives a measure of the amount of the resource per staff and student.

Waste and resource recovery

The volumes in the pie chart of each resource recovered represent recovery from Doyle Bros' recovery facility "The Lab", not specific customer sites. Recovery volumes from The Lab are based on averages recovered over the previous quarter (accuracy estimated at +/- 5%).
Unlike other Universities, Macquarie University does not separately measure hydrant fluid for fire services, which will skew the number of kiloliters per ESTSL + FTE higher.
