The City of Port Phillip wanted to join with the State Government and other local governments, organisations and the community to show our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
We are committed to achieving zero Greenhouse Gas emissions in council operations and services by 2020 and value the state government’s commitment to reach zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The City of Port Phillip is mitigating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions at every opportunity. We are ensuring our buildings are energy efficient as well as installing PV wherever feasible.
As a coastal council we are concerned about how sea level rise, erosion and storm surges will impact our city and are taking measures to prepare our coastal assets for the future. Through innovative urban design and incorporating integrated water management into open spaces we are also preparing our city for what the future climate may look like by.
