Creating a healthier, happier city

With a strong commitment to innovation and protecting the planet, the City of Fremantle identified the One Planet Living framework as the most effective tool to reduce its environmental impact, deliver a higher quality of life for residents and create new business opportunities.

Fremantle's ambitious One Planet Action Plan shares targets for the council as well as the city itself and it was recognised for its commitment to One Planet Living in 2015. Check out its One Planet Action Plan and its One Planet Living Annual Report 2018.

Ambitious targets

  • All new commercial, mixed use and multi-residential developments to be designed and constructed to achieve a rating of no less than 4 Star Green Star (Australian environmental construction accreditation)
  • Reduce council water consumption by 25% against a 2005 baseline by 2015 and 50% by 2020
  • Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from council travel and haulage by at least 30% by 2020 (from 2010)

I’ve learned that you can’t just tackle one aspect if you are going to be a sustainable city. You need to come at the challenge from different angles and One Planet Living provides that framework.
