Consultation has concluded




The City of Perth is developing an Environment Strategy to lead, inspire and work with our community to ensure Perth is one of the world’s most environmentally sustainable cities. This will be measured by reporting against the targets set out in the Draft Environment Strategy and participating in global reporting initiatives like the Carbon Disclosure Project.

Part of our Strategic Community Plan: Vision 2029+ is that in 2029, Perth is a place where the natural environment and built form exist in harmony. Our commitment is to increase community awareness of environmentally sustainable ways of living and to ensure that Perth develops in a way that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the needs of future generations, through the integration of environmental protection, social advancement and economic prosperity, to build a sustainable future for the city.

Our draft Environment Strategy sets out our proposed action priorities, for the next 15 years, across five focus areas:

· Environmental Sustainability and Health

· Climate Response

· Energy Resilience

· Water Wise City

· Waste Conscious City

You can access the Draft Environment Strategy by clicking on the link at the top right of this page, picking up a copy from Customer Service at Council House (27 St Georges Terrace, Perth).

Also for your information is the City's 2015 Environmental Snapshot document, which highlights the city's environmental actions to date.

We recently asked you to share your thoughts on the draft strategy on the brainstorm section of this page. These suggestions (which you can still read) will be taken into account when we finalise the Environment Strategy.


As part of the public consultation, the City also pledged to plant 1000 trees which have now been gifted in the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund’s Yarra Yarra biodiversity Corridor in the Western Australian Wheat Belt.
