The construction and operation of our buildings has a significant impact on our natural resources. They consume 32% of the world’s resources, including 12% of the water we consume and the generation of around 40% of all CO2 emissions. Buildings that are sustainably designed, constructed and operated may achieve substantial financial savings and have significant social and environmental benefits, when compared to conventional buildings.
Council has established objectives and targets that will help reduce energy and water consumption, help reduce carbon emissions, and make our households and businesses more sustainable. These measures will also help reduce ongoing operational costs and help increase the health and wellbeing of both residents and workers.
