Benefits of Membership

Councils become members by passing a resolution for their commitment to sustainable procurement. Member councils enjoy the benefits of being part of large network, including the sharing of knowledge, experience and resources with other members. All NSW councils are eligible to join. Find out more on how Sustainable Choice can help your council.

The program is a joint undertaking of Local Government NSW with the Office of Environment and Heritage NSW (OEH), and participating councils.
