Climate Change Mitigation Plan

Tell us your ideas and ambitions for how Council should take action on the climate emergency.

Wollongong’s Climate Change Mitigation Plan maps the pathway of how together we can transition to a low carbon community and achieve our target of Net Zero emissions by 2050.

Climate change mitigation is a dynamic space with rapidly evolving technology, and so our approach to reducing emissions needs to be adaptive. That’s why the pathway consists of a series of documents that are updated throughout our journey to Net Zero emissions. The existing edition, the Climate Change Mitigation Plan 2020-2022 has set the foundation for reducing both Council operational and community emissions. Building on the successes and lessons learned from this document, we are developing the next edition of the series, the Climate Change Mitigation Plan 2023-2027 (CCMP 23-27to focus on the next steps in achieving Net Zero emissions.

To help us shape the CCMP23-27 and Council’s actions to help the community reduce emissions, we want to know:

  • What steps are you already taking – or want to take in the future – to reduce your impact on climate change?
  • What challenges you face in reducing your emissions?
  • How can Council best support you to make these changes?
  • What do you think Council should prioritise in our actions to address climate change and its impacts?
