Testimonial

Bayside City Council recognises the significance of climate change and the opportunities for urban communities to reduce their operational greenhouse gas emissions. An effective response to the impacts of climate change requires both mitigation and adaptation initiatives. For many years Council has been actively addressing climate change, initially focussing its efforts on greenhouse gas emissions in line with its Greenhouse Action Plan, first completed in 2004. Council has a goal of achieving carbon neutrality for its operations by 2020. Council's Climate Change Strategy includes adaptation actions to identify and address climate change risks and build resilience of Council's assets and operations, as well as the resilience of the Bayside community as a whole. Recognising the contribution of Council's fleet to its operational greenhouse gas emissions, Council has developed a Green Travel Plan. which includes a program to improve the fuel efficiency of Council fleet by decreasing vehicle size, using and purchasing more fuel efficient vehicles. While the fuel efficiency of the Council fleet is continually improving, Greenfleet is seen as a means of neutralising the remaining greenhouse gas emissions. Council recognises the additional benefits that tree planting brings to the environment and local communities.
