Working with Business
Target sustainability @ marrickville is Marrickville Council's environmental program specifically for local businesses. It is voluntary and free to join for businesses in the Marrickville local government area. To participate, businesses must set a target or a commitment in any one or more of the following areas:
- Reduce their carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduce their water use
- Reduce their waste
- Contribute to community and social sustainability
Often, small business owners do not have time to focus on reducing their environmental impact. This program assists small and medium businesses reduce their environmental impact, and promote their environmental achievements to the Marrickville community. Council's Sustainable Business Team assists business owners to meet their targets through tailored advice and support.
