What is the Emissions Management Plan?

This Plan provides a strategic pathway for City of Casey over the next four years to invest in energy efficiency and renewable technology to maximise economic and environmental benefits to the City.

Why are you preparing the Emissions Management Plan?

This Plan ensures the Council can continue to manage its energy use and associated emissions and costs so as it can efficiently and effectively deliver for the growing City.

Why does Council need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?

Greenhouse gas emissions from Council’s operations largely results from electricity and gas used in the operation of buildings and fuel used by fleet vehicles. Reducing this energy use through efficiency improvement reduces both greenhouse gas emissions and reduces energy bills to Council. This therefore benefits Casey both environmentally and economically.

When will the Emissions Management Plan be finished?

The Emissions Management Plan will be finalised in June 2018.
