Green living at Redland City Council

Green living in Redland City

Redland City Council incorporates the sustainable and energy-efficient use of resources in its local programs and initiatives.

These are based on five main principles:

  • Our policies and plans support ecologically sustainable development and respond to climate change issues
  • Sustainable building design (for example, solar panels and water tanks) is supported through education and advocacy
  • Our waste management plans address current and future needs, and include plans for closed landfills and regional collaboration
  • We work with the community to actively recycle and reduce waste
  • Our transport planning reflects a desire to maximise economic, environmental and liveability outcomes through quality road design and public transport, pedestrian and cycling strategies.

Our commitment

We are committed to take the following actions:

  • Take a leadership role in the community and actively reduce Council’s emissions and carbon footprint
  • Provide community education to encourage sustainable building design and alternative energy usage
  • Reduce the environmental impacts of Council’s waste collection and resource recovery operations
  • Partner with the community in diverting and minimising waste
  • Continue to expand the pedestrian pathway and cycleway network
  • Advocate for improved access to innovative and high quality public transport services.
