The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has issued an "ICT Guideline 
for Green IT" (30 October 2012): 

This aims to reduce the USQ’s ICT carbon footprint. Measure include 
consolidating applications and selection of energy efficient equipment. 
Recycling to avoid eWaste is also discussed.

No figures on existing emissions or ewaste are given and no targets are 
set, so the USQ's commitment to ICT Sustainability is questionable. The 
document is the equivalent of 2 A4 pages and at 159 kbytes is not 
efficiently formatted, thus wasting ICT resources.
