Sustainable Sydney 2030
Green, global and connected
Sustainable Sydney 2030 is a set of goals we have set for our city to help make it as green, global and connected as possible by 2030. The plan will transform the way we live, work and play.
Sydney 2030 came to life after we asked people who live, work and visit Sydney what kind of city they wanted. People told us they wanted a city that cares about the environment, has a strong economy, supports the arts and that connects its people to each other and the rest of the world. Sydney 2030 is now the cornerstone of everything we do.
The 2030 vision focuses on 10 strategic directions:
- A globally competitive and innovative City
- A leading environmental performer
- Integrated transport for a connected City
- A City for pedestrians and cyclists
- A lively, engaging city centre
- Vibrant local communities and economies
- A cultural and creative City
- Housing for a diverse population
- Sustainable development, renewal and design
- Implementation through effective partnerships.
During 2012/13, the City continued to work towards the targets outlined in our Sustainable Sydney 2030 program.
Some of our achievements include:
- installing 2,620 LED street lights, resulting in a 27% reduction in carbon emissions
- installing a further 14 rain gardens, bringing the total to 107
- completing 95% of our $6.9 million energy and water efficiency retrofit of 45 City properties.
