Energy and Climate
In addition to our Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP), Council has a range of supporting plans and strategies to ensure the sustainable future of Woollahra.
Carbon Reduction Strategy and Action Plan
Woollahra Council employed the services of sustainability consultants Kinesis to measure its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and to develop a strategy and action plan to reduce and manage these emissions.
This project builds on the CCP program, Planet Footprint Reporting and Councils GHG action plan and sets out a target and strategies for Council to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2025.
Our Energy and Emissions Targets
Council has developed an Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP) which details Council’s targets and commitments in relation to five key priority action areas (energy & emissions, water, biodiversity, waste, transport).
Our energy and emissions targets are:
- 30% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2025
- 60kw of renewable energy installed on council facilities by 2025
