Baseline Capability Study of businesses in the City of Sydney's Sustainable Destination Partnership
City of Sydney
The Sustainable Destination Partnership (SDP) was officially launched in June 2018. It is a collaborative partnership involving the City of Sydney and 28 owners and operators of accommodation and entertainment venues. The Partnership is supported by twelve associate members including industry associations, government and NGO representatives.
The objective of the SDP is for Partners to work collaboratively to improve the sustainability of Sydney’s accommodation and entertainment sector buildings and to help facilitate the achievement of the Sustainable Sydney 2030 goals.
This project established the current capability of SDP Partners to progress sustainability within their organisations and across the Partnership as a whole. It supports the future evaluation of the SDP and understanding of the extent to which sustainability capability among the Partners has improved over time. The research informs the selection of Partner activities.
Develop a methodology to assess the current level of sustainability capability within each of the 28 Partners in the City of Sydney's Sustainable Destination Partnership (SDP). Partners included owners and operators of accommodation and entertainment venues.
Conduct one-hour workshops with each Partner to obtain data on baseline capablity and to determine the most appropriate actions each can take to progress to improve management of sustainability issues and opportunities.
Develop a research report that clearly demonstrates the variability in sustainability capability across Partners.
Provide recommendations for areas in which Partners can collaborate most effectively to improve sustainability performance across the SDP as a whole..
