As a community member, your actions play an important role on climate change. You're not alone. We also play an important role, along with other tiers of government in limiting global temperature rise. We're committed to leading in, planning for and responding to this challenge. A selection of initiatives to date have included:
- A $4.7 million investment in energy efficient streetlights.
- Roll out of a solar panel (photovoltaic) program across Council buildings.
- Improving our fleet and use of vehicles by
- introducing hybrid vehicles and an electric only vehicle
- encouraging our staff to use public transport
The Banyule Planet: Energy Savings Plan 2014-17 sets out our approach to climate action. A review of the effectiveness in our approach to climate action set out in plans to date is underway. The review is necessary to identify learnings and apply them in future plans.
There will be opportunities for you to contribute to the development of a new plan in 2019.
