Local Government and Sustainability: Survey Results

Local Government and Sustainability: Survey Results

Throughout 2013 and 2014, ICLEI Oceania and Ironbark Sustainability surveyed councils from around Australia and New Zealand with questions around sustainability and their council.

There were some interesting responses, and we’ve collated some of the highlights in two reports.

The first report was released in March 2014 and we investigated what formal sustainable policy and reporting frameworks councils use and what external services and alliances they tap into to support their sustainability efforts. We also examined what formal definitions of sustainability councils use.  

In the second report released in August 2014 we look at why sustainability is important to council staff as individuals and what the hot topics are for 2014. We also gather opinions on a variety of sustainability-related programs or frameworks for local government.

Or you can download the entire results in one report. 

Congratulations also to Murray from Penrith City Council who was the lucky winner of an iPad Mini for completing the survey... It pays to be involved!
