Moreland City Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
For communities reliant on a local coal industry, local government can support the transition away from fossil fuels, by lobbying for state and federal support for a just transition for workers, families and the community and encouraging local economic development and opportunities based on a low carbon economy.
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Provide council resources to educate and support the uptake of renewable energy, such as by hiring an internal renewable energy support officer or establishing an independent body (such as the Moreland and Yarra Energy Foundations).
Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget - roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality.
Ensure Council 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 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.
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).
Opening up unused council managed land for renewable energy, for example land fills, and road reserves.
