Our sustainability progress

Our Glen Eira Sustainability Report 2019–20 highlights our key sustainability achievements for the year and shows you how we are tracking towards our zero net emissions targets.

In 2019–20, we reduced carbon emissions from Council operations by 10%, when compared with 2018-19. This decrease was primary due to upgrading 1,315 street lights to energy-efficient LEDs and installing 19 new solar photovoltaic systems. We also decreased our water usage by 24%.

Since our baseline year of 2014–15, we’ve reduced our emissions by 27%.

Other sustainability initiatives we delivered in 2019–20 include a smart streetlighting trial, which was an Australian first, the delivery of a successful weekly green bin and fortnightly red bin trial and the launch of a Nature Next Door citizen science program.
