Program to save water, energy. Canada Bay and Leichhardt councils will join Sydney Water in a partnership program aimed at improving water and energy efficiencies for local businesses. The Inner West councils have received joint funding of $110,000 from Sydney Water to undertake a pilot partnership program.
Twenty-five businesses in the two council areas will undergo an environmental audit of their operations.
A dedicated project officer will work with them to reduce their water and energy consumption and review waste generation. "Working with Sydney Water on a program such as this reflects council's commitment to achieving a sustainable and environmentally friendly city," Canada Bay mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.
Leichhardt mayor Jamie Parker agreed: "This sustainability partnership is very important in helping businesses to save water and electricity, reduce waste and actually save them money in water , power and waste disposal costs."
