Defining sustainability(Back to top)
Our environment defines how we live and what we do. It’s the spaces we play in, and the place we build. It’s how we get around, and the community around us. It’s where we work and where we call home.
Environmental sustainability is maintaining all the things we love about where we live, work and play. It’s about preserving everything that make our City great, even as it grows. It is the landscape on which we seek to grow Australia’s next great city, by bringing together nature, transport and a better built environment for the benefit of all.
