Our culture

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment brings together specialists in urban and regional planning, natural resources, industry, environment, Aboriginal and social housing and regional New South Wales.

We share a common goal to maximise the long-term wellbeing of New South Wales.

We do this by protecting and improving:

  • prosperity
  • environmental sustainability
  • safety and security
  • social inclusion and cohesion, and
  • attractiveness as a place for recreation and relaxation

We bring together the economy, environment, work and play, industry and recreation. This helps to ensure economic growth and job security considers the environment and character of our neighbourhoods and communities.

We make decisions based on advice and analysis that are transparent, efficient and reflective of the diversity of New South Wales.

We strive to be a global leader in the planning and management of resources, environmental and socio-economic security, financial affordability, land use and carbon emissions.

In our workplace we value collaboration, humility, accountability, kindness and reflect the diversity of our communities.

By working together we will make NSW a better place for all.
