Environmental Sustainability

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has an on-going commitment to achieving environmental sustainability across all of its operations.

There is widespread agreement that immediate environmental action is required, if we are to save the planet, and that this action is critical at individual, household, organisation and government levels.

The Council's Strategic Plan: CityPlan 2030, which was endorsed in July 2008, provides the opportunity to embed sustainability principles across all of the Council's operations, linking economic, social, cultural and environmental factors. This approach is referred to as 'Quadruple Bottom Line (QBL)'.
