We've made 5 action pledges to tackle climate change.
Install renewable energy systems (like solar PV and battery storage) on Council buildings, facilities, and managed land.
- childcare facilities

Create a revolving green energy fund and other funding sources to finance internal projects and achieve energy savings.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures in our operations:
- public lighting
Support community organisations to adopt these measures.
Provide fast or other charging infrastructure at key locations in our municipality for electric vehicles.
Work together and influence
Set local renewable energy or emissions reduction targets and sustainable energy policies.
These will provide a common goal and shared expectations for local residents and businesses.
