Greening Sydney Plan
We will implement our urban greening programs and actions through the greening Sydney plan.
- There are many stakeholders with an interest and capacity to green our urban landscape, and engaging them all to contribute to the greening of Sydney requires a plan and strategic action.
- The physical greening of our urban environment is important because it:
- filters and improves the air we breathe
- provides shade for our houses and streets
- can regulate sunlight to our houses and streets
- reduces urban run off and stormwater pollution
- improves the appearance, economic value and liveability of our cities
- provides a connection to nature in our cities.
