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 emissions by 28% (compared with 2016/17)
- Divested from fossil fuels
- More than doubled rooftop solar capacity within 18 months
- Purchased renewable electricity from a solar farm to power 25% of needs
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.
