Response to Climate Change

Inner West Council is responding to the climate crisis by working to become carbon neutral and 100% renewable.

So far it has:

  • Reduced corporate carbon emissions by over 70% (compared with 2016/17 baseline) 
  • Purchased 100% electricity renewable electricity from NSW solar farms since July 2022
  • Divested from fossil fuels  
  • More than doubled rooftop solar PV capacity on Council buildings to 800kW
  • Committed to transitioning our entire vehicle fleet to electric vehicles (EV) by 2030/31
  • Committed to reducing natural gas use by 70% by 2025 and having fully gas free operations by 2030/31

Council is also working to support the whole Inner West move towards zero emissions. The five key areas of focus are renewables, mobility, buildings and precincts, community partnerships and zero waste.
