Sil­ver sta­tus win for City’s en­vi­ron­men­tal tar­gets

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS -

The City of Kal­go­or­lie-Boulder has re­ceived an award from en­vi­ron­men­tal re­port­ing con­sul­tants Planet Foot­print for im­prove­ments in en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance across its op­er­a­tions.

The sil­ver stan­dard award for 2013-14 was pre­sented to Mayor Ron Yurye­vich at the or­din- ary coun­cil meet­ing on Mon­day.

The City, which was awarded the sil­ver stan­dard for its com­mit­ment to mon­i­tor­ing and in­volv­ing the en­tire or­gan­i­sa­tion in meet­ing sus­tain­abil­ity goals, en­gaged Planet Foot­print in a bid to be­come a smarter user of en­ergy, wa­ter and fuel.

The City won a bronze stan­dard award last year, and the re­cent award­ing of a sil­ver stan­dard demon­strates a greater level of com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity prac­tices this year.

Mr Yurye­vich said the City was ded­i­cated to pur­su­ing fur­ther green ini­tia­tives.
