Environmental Sustainability Plan
We believe that to realise an enduring contribution to Australia’s culture, economy and community, we must live responsibly within our environment, considering both current and future generations.

The Sydney Opera House’s commitment to this is through the development and implementation of our Environmental Sustainability Plan (ESP). Our second three year ESP 2014 – 2016 commenced on the 1 July 2013, and directs our commitment under four focus areas:

  1. Use Resources Efficiently and Responsibly
  2. Minimise Waste
  3. Improve Environmental Risk Management
  4. Embed, Engage and Inspire Change
