Dublin City Council has launched its first sustainability report. The Sustainability Report 2010 sets out the Council’s principles, vision and actions for increasing the economic, social and environmental sustainability of Dublin City.
The seven focus areas of the report are – energy, water, waste, biodiversity, transport, society and procurement.
Kilbarrack Fire Station, through its Green Plan, has been chosen as this years ‘flagship project’. The project shows how the station can actively reduce its energy and water consumption, prevent unnecessary waste and create a more sustainable community.
“The report details our move towards more planned sustainable management of our activities, to better meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world,” says Dublin’s Lord Mayor Gerry Breen.
