The City has a Sustainability and Environment Advisory Group to provide leadership and strategic advice to Elected Members of Council with respect to a broad sustainability and environment charter.

The Sustainability and Environment Advisory Group (SEAG) aims to provide advice on how to develop and implement more sustainable practices in the community, how to conserve and enhance natural areas within the City, and to champion the development and implementation of initiatives, policies and processes in the delivery of the City’s Strategic Community Plan objectives relating to sustainability and environment.
