Climate Change Programs
Urgent greenhouse gas emissions reductions are required across all sectors of society, and the sooner achieved, the sooner the impacts of climate change will be reduced, not only in Waverley but globally.
Waverley is striving to achieve Net Zero community emissions by 2035, and will provide infrastructure, education, financing support and leadership that reflects our community’s ambition for a safe climate, and honours our Climate and Biodiversity Emergency Declaration of 2019. Council will provide targeted support for renewables, energy efficiency and low emissions transport and will leverage incentives and advice to advance environmental upgrades across our community. At the same time we will respond proactively to the climate impacts we cannot avoid such as extreme weather events, and strengthen our capacity to adapt, build resilience and thrive through uncertainty.
