Consultation on this project is now closed.

We received four submissions on the draft Net Zero Action Plan, which will be reported to Council later this year, prior to adoption.

Thank you for your feedback.

About the Net Zero Action Plan

In September and October 2020 we asked for feedback on the draft Net Zero Emissions Action Plan, which steps out how we are going to achieve our net zero emissions and renewable energy goals.

Council is going carbon neutral!

In 2017, Council resolved to be net zero emissions for Council Operations by 2025, and to source 100% of our energy from renewable sources by 2027.

The draft Net Zero Emissions Action Plan for Council Operations 2025 sets out actionable steps that staff can follow in order to achieve these goals.

Development of the Action Plan

In 2019, Council adopted the Net Zero Emissions Strategy for Council Operations 2025 . The Strategy sets the climate change context and maps out a dynamic, high-level pathway for Council to achieve its aspirational climate change mitigation goals.

The draft Action Plan has been crafted to sit alongside the Strategy and provide specific and practical measures that will be rolled into Council’s four-year Delivery Program and annual Operational Plan.
