We are actively working to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. We know our climate is changing and there is a greater risk of flooding, heat stress, drought, and harsher fire seasons.
These changes have a significant impact on our community and present many challenges. The 2019/20 summer season demonstrated the devastating impacts of harsher fire weather. Bushfires have long-term impacts on the ecology of the area, pose a threat to human life, and impact our economy.
How are we addressing climate change?
As a contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, we know we need to demonstrate leadership by reducing our emissions. We also need to find new, sustainable and innovative solutions to address climate change.
