The City of Darebin Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
Ensure that the practices of local government contractors and financing such as banking, insurance, and super are aligned with council goals relating to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport. Set appropriate criteria for council procurement.
Providing for adequate cycle lanes (both space and connectivity) in road design and supporting cyclists through providing parking, and end-of-ride facilities (covered, secure bike storage, showers, bicycle maintenance and incentives).
Facilitate large energy users collectively tendering and purchasing renewable energy at a low cost.
Electrify public transport systems (for example buses operated by council) and fleet vehicles and power these by 100% renewable energy.
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.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
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.
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.
