Department of the Environment: Advertising

(Question No. 1009)


Mr Conroy asked the Minister for the Environment, in writing, on 17 August 2015:

What sum was spent by the Minister's department(s) on advertising and associated services in 2014-15, and what policy areas did this relate to.


Mr Hunt: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

During 2014-15 the Department conducted one advertising campaign for the Green Army. Further information on that advertising campaign is available at: www.environment.gov.au/.

The Green Army advertising campaign has been allocated $5 million (GST exclusive) in administered funding over 2014-15 and 2015-16, which is less than 0.8% of the total Green Army administered budget from 2014-15 to 2018-19.

Further information is also available in the reports on Australian Government advertising prepared by the Department of Finance available at: www.finance.gov.au/advertising/index.html

Payments made during 2014-15 which exceeded the reporting threshold of $12 565 (inclusive of GST), as specified in section 321A of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 are presented below. These figures include both administered and departmental funding.
