The Climate Change Mitigation Strategy was endorsed in late 2018, and is a major commitment to urgent action to reduce emissions and forms part of our efforts towards a local and international movement of cities to address climate change.
This includes investment in:
- renewable energy
- urban forests
- green buildings
- waste innovation
- better pedestrian and cycling infrastructure
The strategy aligns to the Paris Climate Agreement and the international effort to stay below a 1.5°C rise in global average temperatures. It describes the actions we can take together to address the causes of climate change. It might be a global problem but the solutions are right here in our city.
We are calling on everyone — individuals, community groups, businesses, and all levels of government — to join us in our commitment to action with clear social, environmental and economic benefits for those who live and work in our city.
