In the dynamic landscape of local government, the quest for sustainability takes centre stage. Queensland councils, bear a profound responsibility to shape a future that is not only prosperous but also environmentally and socially responsible for our communities. 

In this edition, we explore the transformative role of councils in fostering sustainable communities and the pivotal impact of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) education in achieving this goal. 

The Local Government Sustainability Framework serves as a blueprint for integrating sustainable practices into all aspects of local governance and with the support of our partner organisation, Kineo, Peaks is now offering a suite of eLearning courses that will act as a catalyst for change within your council and aligning the Local Government Sustainability Framework with Kineo's eLearning solutions will foster a culture of sustainability within councils. This approach ensures that sustainability is not merely a policy or program, but a core value guiding decision-making and actions.

Kineo’s suite of foundational ESG elearning programs is now available to Queensland Councils through Peak Services.

The following list of courses will provide council staff with the knowledge and skills to embed ESG principles into their daily operations, covering topics such as resource management, ethical governance, social equity, and community well-being.
