Bronte Surf Club

Sustainability and becoming Carbon Neutral

In 2005 Bronte Surf Life Saving Club decided to begin the process of making their club more sustainable and to work toward the longer term goal of Carbon Neutrality.

All members of the governing body were enthusiastic as they could see the growing concern about Climate Change and the potentially devastating effects upon the planet. Being a Surf Life Saving Club and at the forefront of many of these effects they felt it was their responsibility to make whatever changes necessary to the Club and its surrounds.

In the same way that Major John Bond in 1903 had a simple community idea that became Surf Lifesaving, the largest volunteer organisation in the world, we believe that if we show and foster environmental initiatives that we may be able to help our community in demonstrating what can be done to arrest climate change.

Envirosurf is that initiative.
