The City of Sydney's efforts to tackle climate change have been praised by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Its report 'Climate Change, Employment and Local Development' looked at how cities and regions are creating green jobs and developing a skilled workforce to meet the needs of a greener economy.

"The City of Sydney's Sustainable Sydney 2030 presents a bold and compelling vision for how this centrally located area will tackle climate change, global competition, transportation congestion, and half a dozen other major challenges over the next 20 years," the OECD report says.
