This participatory model helps identify key groupings of stakeholders that should be engaged in sustainability initiatives, and at what levels this should occur from the local to regional level. In this model, the role of council or other central organisation is facilitator and coordinator.

Forming a sustainability team, or ‘S-Team’, in your council or organisation can make the difference between sustainability being ‘just an idea’ and it creating committed organisational involvement.  The ‘S-Team’ process and model of representation provides an effective focus for collaboration and achievement of sustainability goals.

The SARA system provides a comprehensive assessment and reporting tool for decision-making related to projects, programs and development proposals. It includes an assessment matrix and report template. It enables concepts, actions and responses to be measured or considered in relation to key success indicators and targets.
