Greenlight for Albatross
By Dallas McMaugh
HUNDREDS of HMAS Albatross personnel
attended the Greenlight Program launch on October
21 to find out how they could improve resource
efficiency in the workplace.
The Greenlight Program is an Albatross-wide ini-
tiative, sponsored by the Defence Support Group, aim-
ing to reduce energy consumption through awareness
It has a three-year plan with ambitious but achiev-
able targets, including reducing electricity use by 20 per
cent, potable water use by 30 per cent, landfill waste by
40 per cent, and automotive fuel consumption by 10 per
Albatross' Commanding Officer, CAPT Stefan King
encouraged all personnel to support the program by
becoming actively involved with ideas and contribution
to reduce consumption, create less waste and delive
"This is a great opportunity for all of us and all
needs is basic changes and big ideas," CAPT King said.
"This will help make our corner of the beaut
ful Shoalhaven that bit greener and contribute towards
Strategic Reform Program savings targets."
The launch also featured a local sustainable energy trade
show, tips for household energy savings and a sustainable ini-
Taking in the exhibits was LSSN Vanessa Osborne who
was there to learn how she could do more for the environment.
"I'm already very energy conscious at home," LSSN
"I wanted to look at everything on display here today, to
hear about what Defence is doing about energy consumption
and to find out how I can do my bit to improve energy savings

NAVY needs to step it up in the 2011
ADO Blood Challenge if it is to avoid
Army led with 243 blood donations
at the midway point followed by Air
Force with 167, Defence civilians with
139, and Navy with 105.
The Air Force has won the blood
challenge in the first two years it has
Blood challenge spokesperson Gary
Schulz said the healthy competition
translated into 1962 life-saving blood
transfusions but at this stage donations
were down on 2010 results.
"I had hoped for better results at this
stage and I am in fear of us not reach-
ing the target we reached in 2010," Mr
Mr Schulz said Canberra-based per-
sonnel could take a pat on the back as
they were among the most significant
donors across Australia.
He said the blood challenge contin-
ued until November 30 and there was
still plenty of time to make donations
"People who give blood are special
people and the idea is to give blood right
up until November 30 so there are good
blood supplies before Christmas."
