The City of Sydney have a progressive vision to promote innovation on environmental issues and continually improve their sustainability performance. As part of the Sydney Light Rail project the City of Sydney will introduce a suite of new street furniture. Comprehensive environmental information was sought to underpin this large scale procurement decision.
Edge Environment performed a Life Cycle Assessment to determine the most environmentally preferable material option for each piece of street furniture. The LCA engaged the furniture designer, manufacturer and relevant City of Sydney staff to gather the required information. The analysis was completed within a six week time frame and offered clear conclusions regarding the environmentally preferable material options which you will likely see on the streets of Sydney in the near future.
