Logan City Council Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.
Facilitate large energy users collectively tendering and purchasing renewable energy at a low cost.
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.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Set minimum energy efficiency benchmarks for all planning applications.
Set up meetings and attend events, such as the Community Energy Congress or Cities Power Partnership Summit, where like-minded cities can address common concerns and learn from others’ experience.
Encourage sustainable transport use (public transport, walking and cycling) through Council 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.
Provide incentives (for example rate reductions) for best practice developments such as streamlined planning processes, and support for retrofitting energy efficiency measures for existing buildings.
Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Join us in congratulating Logan City Council for joining the Cities Power Partnership!
