Community and education services

Our team provides not-for-profit community services in Port Phillip with the support, training and expert knowledge needed to become a sustainability leader and reduce operating costs.

Community services don’t always have the time and resources to explore and implement sustainability measures. We provide the support these organisations need to reduce their impact on the environment.

  • online support from members through a dedicated social media group
  • one-on-one sustainability advice and support from Council officers including vision-setting workshops

Currently, we are delighted to be working with these organisations:
