Brisbane Is Australia’s 3rd Most Sustainable City

24 Jun 2010 Brian Brady 0 Comment

Queensland has always been an environmentally friendly bunch so it is great to see that we have been ranked as the third best city in Australia when it comes to sustainability.
 
These results are according to a national report carried out by the Australian Conservation Foundation that measured Australian cities based on indicators such as air quality, ecological footprint, green building, water, biodiversity, health, density, transport, climate change and food production.
 
So what did Brisbane rate well on? Apparently we scored best on green building (thanks to using Green Star certified products), water use, biodiversity and food production.
 
Unfortunately we didn’t fair so well for our ecological footprint though, with every Brisbanite requiring 6.87 hectares per person per year due to the amount we consume.
 
Overall though Brisbane is performing very well on the environmental front, and hopefully we keep on improving so that in the future we become Australia’s number one most sustainable city!
