Climate Emergency Plan

This stage of consultation is closed.

Our planet’s climate is already too hot, with dangerous heatwaves, droughts, storms and flooding becoming more intense and destructive. Transformational change is needed across our society and economy to rapidly reduce carbon emissions, change our resource intensive ways of life and adapt to living in an unstable climate.

In response to the climate emergency, we have developed a draft Climate Emergency Plan. This plan will commit us to ambitions actions that we can take to reduce our own emissions, and supports our community to do the same.

The key objectives of the draft Plan are:

• Achieve a zero-carbon target for emissions generated by the Town of Victoria Park by 2030.
• Achieve at least 40% emissions reduction through direct action (i.e. not through carbon offsets).
• Support the community and businesses in working towards their own zero-carbon target.
• Improve the resilience of the Town in responding to immediate climate change impacts.

Following February's Ordinary Council Meeting, Council have approved the release of the draft Plan for public comment.
