Sustainability Policy and Sustainability Framework

Council's Sustainability Policy and Sustainability Framework strategically addresses sustainability issues in Brimbank.

Under the policy statement and principles Council aims to:

  • Build a legacy which enables an engaged and resilient community that supports a sustainable environment containing rich social, economic and environmental characteristics;
  • Show 'Sustainability’ means our actions meet current needs without compromising the prospects of future generations. This requires Council to incorporate environmental considerations alongside social and economic values in our decision-making processes; and
  • Support our community to become sustainability stewards by taking action on the local impacts of resource depletion, pollution and climate volatility.

Brimbank’s Sustainability Framework is the main way Council will exact the Sustainability Policy.
