In 2014, the City set interim environmental performance targets for its own operations to be achieved by 31 December 2016. We expect to meet or exceed our 2016 targets in key areas of emissions reduction, resource recovery and park irrigation efficiency.
The renewable energy target included the installation of solar power at buildings that are yet to be constructed, such as the Green Square Aquatic Centre, so it will be achieved once these buildings are complete.
We are now looking towards the future. The Draft Environmental Action 2016-2021 Strategy and Action Plan proposes a series of targets to be met by 2021 and then stretch targets to 2030.
