Climate Emergency Plan

The Shire recognises the climate emergency presents an unprecedented challenge. We need to all work together to curb emissions and stay under 1.5oC.

Our Climate Emergency Plan(PDF, 76MB) provides clear priorities and actions for how we will support and work with our community to achieve zero carbon emissions for the Mornington Peninsula by 2040.

To see our progress on the Climate Emergency Plan over the last 12 months, check out our Climate Emergency Plan Progress Report 2021-22(PDF, 2MB) or you can see the summary of our key achievements here(PDF, 726KB)

The Chart below provides a snapshot of the progress we have made on the 172 tasks within the Climate Emergency Plan in the last two years of delivery.
