Council Action – Maribyrnong

On Tuesday night (17th April) Maribyrnong city council resolved various things to do with water and climate change, three resolutions were:

– That Council becomes carbon neutral by 2015 for Council’s corporate activities.
– That Council becomes carbon neutral by 2020 for Community (residential and commercial) emissions.
– That Council prepares a detailed Action plan on reaching carbon neutrality by 2015 (Council’s corporate) and 2020 for community (residential and commercial) activities by December 2007 and recommendations be referred for consideration by Council as part of the 2008/2009 Budget process.

This is a great step forward for Maribyrnong Council and we hope that it sparks a change in local councils all around Victoria (and Australia)

We need to work together at all levels of government and community to make a positive difference in the fight against climate change.
