Environmental Management in the City of Armadale 

The City of Armadale has used State of the Environment Reporting (SOTER) to guide the implementation of environmental programs and strategies within the City over a five year period.

A key component of SOTER is a five-year environmental works program. The report provides a justification for the delivery of environmental strategies, under the following categories traditionally considered environmental assets of the City:

  • Biodiversity
  • Water Resources
  • Wetlands and Watercourses
  • Climate and Sustainability
  • Clean Air
  • Unpolluted Land

 

The above process incorporates key principles of International Standard ISO14001 Environmental Management Systems, the intended outcomes of which are as follows:

  •  Enhancement of environmental performance.
  • Fulfilment of compliance obligations.
  • Achievement of organisational environmental objectives.

The overall intent is to enable management to effectively address environmental risks and opportunities. This comes through the integration of environmental management into organisational business processes and strategic and operational decision making.

The City is currently reviewing the effectiveness of the SOTER framework, with a view to identifying potential improvements. The overall approach to environmental management in the City will be presented to Council over the next six months.
