Bayside City Council Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Get city-level renewable energy or emissions reduction targets and sustainable energy policies to provide a common goal and shared expectations for local residents and businesses.
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centres, sporting grounds, and council offices.
Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Electrify public transport systems (for example buses operated by council) and fleet vehicles and power these by 100% renewable energy.
Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.
Power council operations by renewables, directly (with solar PV or wind), or by purchasing Greenpower (from electricity retailers). Set targets to increase the level of renewable power for council operations over time.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Implement an education and behavior change program to influence the behavior of council officers, local residents and businesses within the municipality to drive the shift to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
