Environment

The Town of Mosman Park is committed to environmental, social and economic sustainability and is constantly working towards maintaining and improving biodiversity, water and air quality and other natural assets.

The Town is also responding to emerging issues such as climate change, declining water quality and availability, renewable energy, recycling and community resilience.

The Sustainability in Focus logo

The Sustainability in Focus logo is used to communicate Council’s environmental and sustainability activities.

The logo encompasses two main concepts; first, the circles come together to focus on one clear point; second, the shape created in the space between the circles represents the Boronia alata, a plant native to Mosman Park.

The colours represent different areas of sustainability; red is waste; yellow is energy; green is our natural assets (bush, beach, foreshore); blue is water.
