Draft MV2040 Action Plan - Green

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Together with our community we are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, divert waste from landfill, protect and recycle our valuable drinking water supplies, enhance our urban environment and ecology, and keep our city green and cool. Managing our city’s impact on the environment and adapting to climate change is a crucial part of making our city healthy.

In October 2019, Council declared and acknowledged the climate emergency. The climate emergency declaration is designed to accelerate sustained and meaningful action by all levels of government, and for people globally to engage with the challenge of avoiding catastrophic climate change and restoring a safe climate.

The Green Action Plan outlines our plan to meet our actions, targets and strategic objectives which were endorsed as part of MV2040 in June 2018. It also explains how we will influence and collaborate with others to contribute towards the achievement of targets for our community, and respond to the climate emergency.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the 146 items listed in the MV2040 Green Action Plan. The feedback is currently been collated and will be shared with everyone soon.
