This section of our website will help you to live sustainably. For Council, sustainability is about working to achieve the best outcomes for our communities, our environment, and our economy. To do this, we work with our community to come up with shared goals and we're open and transparent in how we work towards these together. This balance of people, the environment, the economy and governance is known as a 'quadruple bottom line' approach to sustainability.
