We are the Sustainability Working Group – a group of individuals who are committed to improving the environmental, social and economic sustainability of Greater Shepparton City Council for the benefit of our community and staff.
The role of the Sustainability Working Group is to:
– Raise sustainability awareness and participation by all staff across council
– Develop programs to enable the organization to improve its sustainability
– Develop a culture that promotes best practice sustainability actions and behaviour in council
– Encourage two-way dialogue between members of the SWG and their respective teams to assist in sharing knowledge and direction to enhance sustainability within council.
Our team meets monthly and works to contribute to the reduction of council’s environmental footprint and demonstrate strong advocacy and civic leadership in sustainability in the community.
