This resource guide aims to support councils in developing the environmental management capacity of their operational teams.
It has a practical focus and brings together the experiences and resources developed by councils in New South Wales. It provides support for councils that are developing environmental management programs through to those councils aiming for ISO 14001 certification, an international standard of environmental management.
Councils across the state have taken different approaches to environmentally aware and responsible operational teams. These differences in approach reflect the diversity of councils across New South Wales. Council personnel are encouraged to work through this guide and adopt recommendations that suit their own particular situations.
