Sustainable Travel & Transport

Sustainable Travel and Transport is a Sustainability Pillar in our Sustainability Strategy 2021 - 2031. The relevant key principle is: 'Sustainable or Green Transport aims to limit the reliance on diminishing natural resources that leave a high carbon footprint'.  Our objectives related to this pillar are:

  • Reduce the carbon footprint for the fleet of corporate vehicles
  • Planning developments to include infrastructure and design considerations for alternate modes of transport
  • Fund innovative technologies for sustainable and green transport options
  • Promote programs that will see reduced reliance on fossil fuel transport
  • Support adaptation to sustainable best practice transport options in the community
