Sustainability resources for apartment buildings

Help reduce energy and water use.


We all have a part to play in reducing our impact on the planet. Here’s how.

  • Smart green apartments: Around 75% of local residents live in apartment buildings. These vertical villages account for 10% of local greenhouse gas emissions, 38% of water use and 14% of waste. Find out how we can support you to improve your building's environmental performance and save money.
  • Grants: Add to what you love about your village and help different people in the community come together for something great. Find out about the types of grants on offer and all the latest success stories.
  • Community gardens: Part of the move towards locally grown foods. Community gardens can significantly reduce the carbon impact of transported fruits and vegetables.
  • Sydney City Farm: Find out more about volunteer opportunities, and sign up for workshops about edible gardens, composting and worm farming.
  • Plants and animals: Learn about the creatures that call our local area home. Find out what we’re doing to help them flourish and see what you can do too.
