Our Action Plan

Our Environmental Targets

Woollahra Council has long been committed to protecting our environment, operating as sustainably as possible, and taking action on climate change.

Our environmental planning processes help us:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and water use, and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
  • Protect and enhance biodiversity.
  • Improve the quality and health of our waterways.
  • Reduce the amount of waste generated and sent to landfill.
  • Support our community to live more sustainably.

In 2018 Council adopted Woollahra - 2030 Our community, our place, our plan(PDF, 15MB). Our progress towards the environmental targets in this plan are noted in Council's Annual Report. The graphic below provides a snapshot of our sustainability achievements.
