Environmental Sustainability


The Rockhampton Region is a great place and we’re committed to keeping it that way. Already there’s a lot happening to protect, maintain and enhance our environment but there’s still more work to do. As the level of government closest to the community, local council is responsible for the management and protection of local communities and their environment. That’s why we’re working together to embed sustainability in everything we do.

The Rockhampton Regional Council Corporate Plan sets an environment goal to be an environmentally balanced and aware community, which preserves and maintains our natural environment and incorporates contemporary and proven sustainability principles, as part of all activities for current and future generations.
