Environmental Management Framework

Cumberland will lead by example to deliver a clean, green and sustainable environment for current and future generations.

Council's vision for our environment

Cumberland will lead by example by reducing our environmental footprint through reducing water and energy usage across our facilities. We will apply continuous improvement initiatives to:

  • Ensure our waterways are protected, clean and healthy by improving our waterways and riparian corridors
  • Deliver great natural and green spaces that serve our local biodiversity through managing our open spaces, parks and vegetation
  • Deliver clean and attractive public places by providing an efficient waste collection service for the community
