Sustainability Policy

Council acknowledges the need to alter current practices based on growing evidence that business as usual is not sustainable. It also recognises the need to provide a significant role in leading and supporting the community in their sustainability endeavours.

  • By integrating the intent of this policy into everything we do, Council will:
  • Minimise Council’s exposure to increasing resource costs,
  • Demonstrate corporate leadership, and
  • Satisfy Council’s statutory obligations

Council will implement this policy by:

  • Integrating sustainability across the organisation’s daily practices,
  • Considering sustainability in all decision-making processes, and supporting and guiding the community in their endeavours to work towards a sustainable future.

This policy outlines Council’s commitment to progressing towards sustainability and to the principles of sustainability under which Council conducts its activities.
