Council has achieved net carbon neutrality from 2022.

Description

The City of Boroondara is committed to reducing our carbon emissions. Our target is to achieve net carbon neutrality by 2022 and actual carbon neutrality by 2040.

Net carbon neutrality has been achieved in 2022 by reducing our energy use, generating onsite solar electricity, purchasing 100% green electricity and purchasing greenhouse gas offsets for the remaining emissions.

We will continue to reduce our reliance on greenhouse offsets in order to meet our goal of 100% reduction in emissions without the use of offsets.

Council undertakes an annual inventory of corporate greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon credits are purchased to offset the associated emissions.

Updates about our corporate greenhouse emissions and carbon offsetting are coming soon.
