Environmental sustainability

Mackay Regional Council is committed to a healthy, connected and sustainable community and aims to minimise environmental impact by achieving a balance between our built infrastructure and the conservation of our natural resources.

Council puts sustainability into practice through its corporate commitments, governance arrangements, operations and community partnerships which work to protect and enhance our region’s natural assets, biodiversity and respond to climate change.
