Description:

The City of Sydney adopted its Environmental Management Plan on 25 June 2007 which establishes the environmental vision, targets and actions for Council and the local government area for:

  • energy and emissions
  • water
  • waste
  • plants and animals

There are 53 actions designed to reduce environmental impacts associated with Council and our community through demonstration, advocacy and partnership.

A summary of targets include:
