Environmental action

Working towards a more sustainable, liveable city.

Why we’re doing this

In June 2019, Lord Mayor Clover Moore declared a climate emergency in response to the ongoing effects of climate change.

The challenges we collectively face are significant. But we’re determined to maintain the liveability of our city and build our resilience to the impacts of global warming.

We’ve created this environmental sustainability hub for residents and businesses in the city, to learn about the different ways you can take action. There are dozens of ways you can make a difference.

We’ve also gathered information about our ongoing sustainability initiatives, so you can see what we’re doing.

Together, we can safeguard the future of Sydney.
