Climate & Sustainability

Climate Change is the most urgent and threatening issue facing us.  Unaddressed it can have catastrophic consequences for humanity and in its extreme life on earth.  It is a global issue that requires local action - to reduce our emissions, adapt to its impacts and develop truly sustainable communities and lifestyle.

Local government is the closest tier of government to the community and the most trusted.  It is incumbent on Kingborough Council to lead its community and work constructively and collaboratively throughout the region to develop responses to climate change.  Council recognises this and through its 'Climate Change and Energy Action Plan' (CCEAP) a strategic mechanism is provided begin to achieve this.

Kingborough is committed to reducing its emissions and energy use, beginning to prepare to adapt to the impacts of climate change and to working with its community to increase awareness of the issue and assist in transitioning to a low carbon lifestyle.
