One Planet Living in Fremantle

The City of Fremantle has used the One Planet Living framework since 2014 to both influence and track the sustainability of its operations and how it works with the community.

One Planet Living is a vision for a sustainable world where people lead healthy, happy lives within their fair share of the earth's resources. It is basically a short cut way of saying, the City of Fremantle cares about doing things better for people and the planet.

Through using One Planet Living, the City continues to reduce the environmental cost of its operations, contribute to a more equitable society, and build a thriving and diverse local economy.

The City of Fremantle is proud of its status as a Global Leader in One Planet Living.
