In 2018 the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) warned we have less than 12 years to reduce global CO2 emissions by at least 50% or face irreversible damage to our planet.

It’s clear from the report, the single most important thing we can do to stop climate change is reduce emissions. So, what is Council doing to support this? As the third council in NSW to declare a climate emergency, it's an issue we take very seriously. Click on any of the images below to read about our current action on climate change, as well as tips for residents to reduce emissions at home. This page will be updated when more projects are approved, and as we receive results on our carbon emissions reduction.
