The City of Canning is taking local action to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The community values the City’s leadership in the sustainable use of resources and in maintaining and improving our natural areas. The Cities Power Partnership allows Canning to collaborate with other local governments at a grass roots level to create a more sustainable planet for future generations. By working in partnership, local governments can show the community that we can continue to reduce emissions

Why council joined the Cities Power Partnership:

The City of Canning takes the issues of climate change seriously and our community has expressed a clear value for sustainable development and pride in our natural environment specifically the Canning River and local bushland. As such the City has assessed local risks and has adopted a range of actions to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate. We have joined the Cities Power Partnership as we see this as an excellent opportunity to partner with other local governments and experts to share knowledge and access funding and incentives. We look forward to adding our knowledge and experience to the national knowledge hub and increase the profile for our work in renewable energy and energy efficiency. More so we hope this partnership inspires leadership, develops more collective action and motivates our community and neighbouring councils to do the same.

City of Canning Partnership Action Pledge

Our power partners are commited to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.

Power part of the organisation’s 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.

Encourage local businesses and residents to take up renewable power such as solar PV, battery storage and solar hot water heating. This can be done through providing incentives (such as solar bulk buy schemes or flexible payment options) or streamlining approval processes (such as removing planning and heritage barriers to solar PV).

Roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the City.

Ensure fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.

Encourage sustainable transport use (public transport, walking and cycling) through transport planning and design. Substantial savings in transport energy use can be achieved by designing more compact cities with access to high quality public and active transport services and facilities.
