Our strategy specifies our vision, principles and objectives.
We will reduce Council’s emissions and support others to adopt and achieve a One Planet Living zero emissions goal
Demonstrate leadership in Council emissions reductions
Prioritise actions that have a strong economic and emissions reduction benefit
Build on local and regional community emissions reduction partnerships to address business and residential sectors emissions
Support economic and jobs growth in the Greater Geelong region
Where Council has a full role or direct responsibility for an aspect of emissions reduction, Council will choose to either:
Provide leadership in its own emission reduction activities; and/or
Provide services to support the community and businesses to reduce their emissions While Council is not directly responsible for community emissions, it recognises that it can play a key role in enabling positive change in the community.
This can come about through engagement and education programs, incentive programs and local planning controls.
