City of Melbourne

Welcome to our TAKE2 profile page.

We’re committed to tackling climate change. That’s why we’ve made the TAKE2 pledge. Check out the work we’ve been doing to reduce our emissions and our plans for the future.

Make the TAKE2 pledge and join us in helping keep the temperature rise under two degrees.

Our pledge

Climate change poses considerable challenges for cities, with more days of extreme heat, higher intensity rainfall, extreme storms, reduced levels of overall rainfall, rising sea-levels and risks of future droughts. Cities that plan and act early will better withstand the impacts of climate change and maintain a platform for future health and prosperity. To safeguard their famously liveable city, Melbourne City Council is taking action.

Council doesn’t have complete control over its emissions, which come from all kinds of public and private sector sources. It is determined to lead the way in tackling climate change, and to prove that local governments can make a difference.
