We are committed to protecting and enhancing our natural environment and practicing sustainable living. These core objectives form part of our Community Strategic Plan (CSP) 2018 – 2028. To complement our efforts we have recently become a Cities Power Partnership (CPP) Partner.

The CPP is a national program run by the Climate Council of Australia. It recognises and supports emissions reduction projects.

Our first task as a CPP partner is to select 5 actions from the list of pledges ranging from renewable energy, energy efficiency, transport and advocacy. We will soon be beginning consultation with staff and Councillors to select pledges that will deliver the best outcomes for Council and our community.

Joining the CPP will allow us to build on successes achieved through our existing Waste Strategy, Environmental Leadership and Sustainable Shellharbour programs. It will also provide an opportunity to work with other like-minded councils across Australia to explore innovative ways to reduce emissions.
