In addition to our Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP), Council has a range of supporting plans and strategies to ensure the sustainable future of Woollahra.
Woollahra Council employed the services of sustainability consultants Kinesis to measure its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and to develop a strategy and action plan to reduce and manage these emissions.
