Sustainability Living Well Annual Report

A Sustainability Living Well Annual Report is presented to the City Council by June of each year. The report is developed through the Environmental Coordinating Team and focuses on the previous year’s activities, and progress towards meeting the 25 numerical targets. It is an opportunity to inspire discussion and critical thinking between City staff and policymakers, and at the same time provide an overview for the public.

New Online Format

As of 2012, the Living Well report will be presented primarily via the Sustainability Indicators website. This new online format allows for staff to keep data and content up to date; provides more space for a deeper analysis of each indicator and target; saves City and natural resources; and provides a more interactive user experience.

GreenPrint Report

The annual GreenPrint Report is a subset of the Living Well Sustainability Report. This report focuses on the City’s 11 environmental indicators.
 

Before you print – ask yourself is it essential that you print these pages? One ream (500 sheets) of virgin office copy paper uses six percent of one tree, and the average office worker uses 20 reams (10,000 sheets) per year. By switching to 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper, you can save 5 lbs. of carbon dioxide per ream of paper, 1.2 trees, 26 gallons of oil, and prevent 2,500 lbs. of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere per year.
