Brimbank’s updated Environmental Sustainability Policy

Brimbank City Council is seeking community feedback on an updated Environmental Sustainability Policy.

The current Policy was adopted in 2012 and is now due for review. The updated Policy sets out a strategic approach to addressing environmental sustainability issues within Brimbank, including biodiversity, climate change and water.

Council is reviewing this policy to outline the vision, guiding principles and strategic path for a range of  environmental sustainability priorities.

Priorities include the natural environment, built environment, greenhouse gas reduction, climate change adaptation, water, waste and pollution.

The draft Policy includes principles that underpin Council’s approach to achieving environmentally sustainable outcomes, including:

  • representing the community’s local sustainability priorities
  • facilitating a strategic approach to addressing sustainability issues
  • responding to emerging environmental issues and opportunities
  • supporting the community to live and work sustainably.
