Residential Apartments Sustainability Plan

Residential apartment buildings presently contribute to 10% of the City’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, consume more than one third of our water and generates 14% of our waste. By 2030, 80% of the City’s residents will live in apartments and 90% of all new homes built will be in high rise apartment buildings.

The draft Residential Apartments Sustainability Plan draws on an extensive range of studies and stakeholder engagement to address the challenges for increasing the sustainability of apartment buildings.

The draft plan sets targets, outcome areas and practical actions for increasing sustainability in apartment buildings. It also saves our community money and reduces emissions water and waste.

We would like to thank everyone who had their say on the plan during the public exhibition. We have considered feedback alongside technical information and project objectives in refining the plan.

The refined plan will be considered by the Environment Committee of Council today, and we will be seeking Council endorsement on 10 August 2015. We invite you to view the refined plan, consultation and Council reports here http://goo.gl/aRpVpu (please scroll to Item 8).
