Next steps for the City

Council resolved to focus the City’s efforts on pursuing climate emergency advocacy and reducing emissions from the City’s operations. These were the two most highly ranked actions that community members believed the City should take in response to climate change, as described in the engagement report.

In practical terms, this will mean responding to state government issues papers and similar policy proposals as they are released, and continuing to partner with organisations such as the Cities Power Partnership and WALGA to find ways to collectively reduce emissions and raise awareness of climate change issues with other local governments.

For its own operations, the City will continue its commitment to carbon neutrality, via implementing the Corporate Energy Plan and purchasing carbon offsets. The City will also continue to implement the actions outlined in the Climate Change Adaptation Plan.
