Mayor: Ross Fowler OAM
For Penrith City Council, sustainability is about working to achieve the best outcomes for their community, environment, and economy. Council works with the community to come up with shared goals in an open and transparent way. This balance of people, the environment, the economy and governance is known as a 'quadruple bottom line' approach to sustainability. (Penrith City Council website)
