- Leading by example: Designing and building projects that have a minimal impact upon the environment through the application of the sustainable design assessment tools (STEPS and SDS) to our own projects.
- Support/Education: Providing information and technical support to individuals and organisations.
- Recognition: Recognising developers and applicants who have achieved the best environmental outcomes through the Bayside Built Environment Awards.
- Advocacy: Continuing to advocate to other levels of government for a state wide and consistent approach to improving the performance of the built form or enabling Local Government to include higher standards within its controls.
