We became the first government in Australia to become carbon neutral in 2007. We declared a climate emergency in 2019, and since July 2020, all of the City’s operations are powered by 100% renewable electricity.
We made the commitment in 2008 to reduce our emissions by 70% by 2030. We did the masterplans, set the targets, have taken action – and we met our goal by 2021, nine years early.
We have now committed to net zero emissions city-wide by 2035.
