Help shape our Carbon Neutral Policy

Published on 03 April 2023


Our Carbon Neutral Policy was originally adopted in February 2016 following Council’s commitment to become carbon neutral in 2014.
Since then, we’ve made significant investment and progress! We’ve reduced emissions by 44 per cent and saved more than $3 million through projects delivered under the Policy.
We also received Carbon Neutral Certification from Climate Active in 2021 – showing our organisation’s commitment to decarbonisation.
We’re now reviewing our Carbon Neutral Policy to maintain our dedication to reducing our carbon footprint wherever possible.
We’re changing the Policy to have more of a community focus so the social, economic and environmental benefits coming from delivering the Policy stay here in our community.
We now want your thoughts to help shape our reviewed Policy.


Community consultation is now open until 1 May 2023.

Hard copy forms are also available at Customer Service Centres.
