The City of Cockburn defines sustainability as:
"Pursuing governance excellence to meet the needs of current and future generations through an integration of environment, society and economy"
The City takes a strategic approach to sustainability and measures its progress through an integrated reporting framework.
The Sustainability Policy is the City’s guiding document for sustainability. It outlines the City's overarching approach to sustainability across 11 principles:
- Integrated decision-making
- Environmental integrity
- Sustainable procurement
- Responsible waste management
- Environmentally sustainable design
- Climate Change Action
- Sustainable City Growth
- Social Equity and Inclusion
- Community Health and Wellbeing
- Economic Advancement
- Leadership and Governance.
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.
The Sustainability Strategy has been replaced by the Climate Change Strategy 2020-2030
