The Northern Beaches is an area of diverse, dynamic and thriving businesses.Non-residential emissions account for 37% of the Northern Beaches community carbon emissions.
The Sustainability Business Network brings together businesses looking to connect and learn from each other. We want to develop a network that supports significant sustainability improvements and shares knowledge and experiences.
Council has produced a series of resources including a 'Toolkit', which set out the steps towards net zero. The guides not only provide information on general environment sustainability goals but also seeks to provide emission reduction opportunities for businesses too.
The toolkit has been designed to enable your business to begin and expand your sustainability journey, reduce your carbon footprint and achieve sustainability targets.
We cover specific areas of high-energy, waste, water and resource use. They include solar, LED Lighting, water reduction, waste minimisation, building and office operation and purchasing.
Council has also developed an interactive map. The map acts as a directory to search for like minded businesses, share best practice, discuss ideas and learn how other businesses make changes to improve sustainability.
