The City of Greater Geelong in Victoria has become the third council in Australia to be formally assessed against the ten One Planet Living Principles.
Geelong has been working with the One Planet Living framework over the last two years and its recognition is based on its existing performance and current sustainability strategies and policies. The framework is based on ten easy-to-grasp principles that enable organisations to plan for, deliver and communicate sustainable development.

The way we work is designed to deliver impact in everything we do with our partners.


Our best creative strategies and projects involve working with our local partners to make things happen and show what can be practically achieved, just as we did with BedZED.

We want to make a real difference, inspire others to do the same and work with our partners to make innovative and lasting changes happen.

We do this through the practical implementation of projects, using and applying our unique One Planet Living framework. We scale up our impact by influencing policy and practice.

We apply creative thinking to challenges that need a fresh perspective or where an entirely new approach is required.

We are always seeking to improve, so we measure, research and evaluate and, if necessary, adapt or amend our approach.
