Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) reduces:
Using ESD we can minimise waste, use sustainable materials and achieve energy efficiencies.
ESD benefits include:
The Shire manages over 600 buildings as well as 713km of footpaths and 3,637km of roads. Other Shire assets include drainage, lighting, playgrounds, ovals and many others. The ESD Policy looks to ensure a more sustainable approach to these buildings and assets.
This Policy, and its ongoing implementation supports the Shire’s work on Carbon Neutrality and the Climate Emergency.
