Environmental Action Plan

Waverley Council was one of the first local governments nationally to formally articulate a strategic environmental vision for its organisation and community which included a detailed and funded cost-effective 10-year roadmap of actions to realise its goals.

This Environmental Action Plan (EAP) (3.11MB) includes ambitious medium and long-term targets in the areas of waste, water use, greenhouse gas reductions, biodiversity, and transport.

Our targets and strategies are based on detailed quantitative and qualitative data analyses and research in each area.

Progress against targets

We track our progress against the environmental targets every 4 years and review our strategies accordingly. Whilst there have been some successes to date, we know there is still a long road ahead. See our most recent progress report (2017).
