Since 2014 the committee has been focusing on raising community awareness of sustainability and environmental issues. It contributes to our community awareness program on biodiversity and vegetation management; sustainable transport; energy, water and waste management; liveable communities and healthy lifestyle; climate change and adaptation; and how we can engage with the community, including the business sector.
Results from our work in these areas are released each year in our Annual Report.
