Our managers and staff have played a key role in defining the behaviours that express and support our values. We are committed to providing a work environment where we can live the values in everything we do and help make the City an even better place to work."
Monica Barone, Chief Executive Officer,City of Sydney
The City of Sydney is the local government authority responsible for the central business district (CBD) and more than 30 suburbs or parts of suburbs within our boundaries. In 2007, the City of Sydney asked residents and businesses what they wanted to see happen over the next 20 years and beyond. The result is a collective vision for Sydney’s sustainable development, called Sustainable Sydney 2030, which will make Sydney a green, global and connected city. The city is fast becoming a leading environmental performer and our sustainability plan guides what we do. Sustainable development is not just about the physical environment, but about fostering Sydney’s economy, society and culture as well.
