The City of Boroondara has published their Low Carbon Future Strategy.
This strategy allows a flexible approach to account for the rapidly changing political and social context surrounding climate change and greenhouse gas abatement, and the emergence of new technologies and practice.
The City of Boroondara proposes two clear and ambitious targets in the strategy:
- Corporate target - To reduce Council’s corporate greenhouse gas emissions by 30 - 40% below 2007/08 levels by 2020.
- Council’s community measures target - To support programs and projects with the community that achieve emission reductions of 12,400 tonnes CO2-e in the first year (2009 / 10) and an abatement total of at least 50,000 tonnes CO2-e by 2020.
The strategy also includes an action plan for the initial three-year period that clearly prioritises improving energy efficiency within Council operations and amongst our community and businesses.
