Environmental sustainability

Council is committed to energy and water reduction goals to ensure accountability and demonstrate leadership. After careful analysis of baseline data and investigation into high-priority sustainability actions, council has committed to:

  • Reducing corporate greenhouse emissions by 20% on 2009-2010 levels by 2020-2021.
  • Reducing corporate water usage by 20% on 2009-2010 levels by 2020-2021

Mitchell Shire is confident that these goals can be met through major actions, such as improvements to street lighting and building efficiency actions, which have the potential to reduce emissions by 2000 tonnes a year.
