The Sustainability Taskforce is Council's community environmental advisory committee and a forum for community members to have input into the design and delivery of Council’s environmental strategies and programs. Volunteer members provide advice and feedback to Council and make recommendations to Council on environmental issues. The Taskforce is made up of representatives from across the Hume community, including environment groups, rural land holders, business and industry, education and community groups. Residents are welcome to attend meetings to discuss environmental issues of concern.

The Sustainability Taskforce is chaired by Cr Jodi Jackson who currently holds the Environment Portfolio. Cr Drew Jessop is also a member of the Taskforce and has previously chaired the Taskforce for a number of years. The Taskforce meets six times per year on Tuesday nights between 6.30pm - 8.30pm. 

In 2019 the Taskforce has provided advice and input to Council for the following programs: 

  • International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons 
  • Emergency management of toxic waste storage and recycling fires 
  • Container Deposit Scheme
  • Declaring a Climate Emergency
