Our Climate Change Action Plan

For over a decade the City of Whittlesea has delivered a range of emissions reduction and climate resilience strategies and programs focussing on Council’s operations, services, and assets. In 2018 our community told us that one of their four top goals for the City of Whittlesea in 2040 is to have a sustainable environment - to be ‘climate ready’ and leaders in clean, sustainable living.

Building on this, Council is now developing a Climate Change Action Plan to guide the transition of our city to a low carbon, climate resilient future.

We want to ensure the Climate Change Action Plan is informed by extensive consultation with stakeholders across our community including individuals, business and industry, developers, community groups, and other levels of government as we recognise the need to work in partenrship to face the climate change challenge ahead.
