One Planet Living in Fremantle
The City of Fremantle has used the One Planet Living as a framework since 2014 to both set the agenda for sustainability throughout the organisational activities and services, and to track its progress in delivering sustainability outcomes. The One Planet Living is used as a platform to engage with internal and external partners to work together towards a sustainable future.
One Planet Living outlines 10 principles covering social, environmental and economic sustainability in a comprehensive framework. Each principle has desired outcomes to plan, deliver and communicate sustainability. The focus on outcomes is critical in driving management plans, ensuring that benefits and impacts are considered.
The framework is based on 10 sustainability principles and associated outcomes:
One Planet Living Action Plan 2020-2025
The One Planet Action Plan 2020-25 sets out a plan guide the sustainability actions in the City’s operations as well as how it can work with businesses and the community. Importantly, the Action Plan connects to the City’s Strategic Community Plan (SCP) aligning its principles and outcomes directly or indirectly to the goals and objectives in the SCP.
One Planet Living Annual reports
Council reports annually to Bioregional for peer review on its progress in implementing actions, programs and initiatives. The reporting tracks the progress in achieving outcomes under key activity areas, celebrating successes and identifying areas that need further resources. This process provides the opportunity to continuously improve its operations and further embed sustainability. The City can use this as a platform for engagement with internal and external partners, inspiring the whole city to participate actively in creating a sustainable future. Key projects are highlighted under each of the 10 principles contributing to better outcomes for the city with a tabled summary of actions progress.
