Environmental plans and reports

Leading the way for a sustainable City

As a manager of Australia's largest central business district, the City of Sydney has a responsibility to help rapidly reduce our environmental impact.

The Environmental Management Plan establishes our vision, targets and actions to create a sustainable city.

The plan is developed in consultation with the community and environmental groups, which looks at:

  • energy and emissions
  • water
  • waste
  • plants and animals.

Many of the targets and actions within the Environmental Management Plan have been incorporated within Sustainable Sydney 2030, the City's vision for a green, global and connected future. The plan is available for download below.

Our green reports, also available for download below, track our progress against the targets set in Sustainable Sydney 2030. The reports include information about how we are implementing our major environmental projects including LED Lighting, the rollout of solar panels, sustainability programs and much more.

From January 2014 our green reports are published twice a year instead of quarterly. The January report covers the previous June to December and July covers January to June.

Our State of the Environment report is released each year.
