City has developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) to manage its environmental aspects and impacts and to help integrate sustainability into its daily services and activities.
City's EMS has been certified to ISO 14001, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems.
The fully functioning EMS provides a framework for monitoring, measuring and reviewing our environmental objectives and targets.
The Sustainability Committee is responsible for managing and reviewing the EMS and reports on progress against objectives within the Annual Sustainability Report which is published on the website.
