Sustainability Strategy 2017 - 2022

The Sustainability Strategy 2017 - 2022 set the City’s key objectives for sustainability, as well as outlining how the City would implement them. This was supported by the Sustainability Action plan which defined the key actions that staff across the City would take to achieve the objectives outlined in the Strategy, and the State of Sustainability (SoS) Report publicly tracked the City’s progress.

Climate Change Strategy 2020-2030

The Sustainability Strategy has been replaced by the Climate Change Strategy 2020-2030. Progress is reported through the Climate Change and Sustainability Snapshot in the City's Annual Report.
