Environmental Sustainability Benchmarking

An annual snapshot of council's environmental sustainability performance.

Central to achieving council’s vision and meeting its greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, is having a clear process in place to measure progress and make corrections where necessary.

Benchmarking provides a comparative annual snapshot of environmental sustainability aspects of business performance. It also provides a direct line-of-sight between council’s vision, corporate plan goals, operational activities and actual performance.

The following indicators measure, track and compare changes (increases or reductions) for the organisation each year:

  • carbon (greenhouse gas) emissions
  • waste generation and diversion
  • energy (electricity and fuel) consumption and renewable energy
  • transport (fleet vehicles and use of alternative transport such as public transport)
  • water consumption
  • environmental sustainability programs (number of programs and staff participation)
  • environmental sustainability systems and process embedded across Council that deliver sustainability outcomes.
