The policy establishes the principles for the environmentally sustainable use of the airport, from which objectives, targets and environmental action plans in the Environment Strategy 2010 – 2015 are developed.

Environment Strategy 2010 - 2015
Sydney Airport’s Environment Strategy 2010 – 2015 (the Strategy) was approved by the Australian Government on 24 May 2010. The Strategy was developed following an extensive community and stakeholder consultation process.
The Strategy details Sydney Airport’s environmental objectives and commitments for the next five years, builds on the environmental achievements made over the previous five years and promotes the continual improvement of environmental management at Sydney Airport.
The Strategy covers all ground-based environmental aspects associated with the operation of Sydney Airport including:
- Environmental Management and Community Engagement
- Climate Change and Energy Management
- Water Management (stormwater quality, groundwater quality and water conservation)
- Air Quality
- Ground Transport
- Ground-Based Noise
- Biodiversity and Conservation Management
- Waste and Resource Management
- Soil and Land Management
- Spills Response
Please note that noise and emissions from aircraft in flight are issues which are addressed in the Master Plan 2009 and by relevant Australian Government legislation, rather than the Environment Strategy.
