At Council the environment is important to us, so we started the Geelong ecoCHALLENGE Initiative.
It's our way of working towards a smaller environmental footprint for Council and a more sustainable future.
Sustainability is the challenge of our time. We depend on our environment for the wellbeing of our community and our economy. So, it makes good sense to do our best to look after our environment.
Sustainability is about more than this. It means considering the social, economic and environmental aspects of everything we do and making balaced decisions.
What is the City doing?
The Geelong ecoCHALLENGE Initiative is the City's way of working towards a smaller environmental footprint and a more sustainable future.
We are leading the way by setting challenging targets and working to reduce our everyday environmental impacts.

We are working hard to lead the way but everyone has a part to play. We encourage small businesses, large corporations, other government agencies, community groups and individuals to help create a more sustainable future.
