Climate Snapshot: How Aussie councils are getting it done – CPP May Webinar
In five years, the Cities Power Partnership has become Australia’s largest network of local councils leading the way to a thriving, zero emissions future. With 180 councils on board, we have seen tangible action and huge emissions reductions taking place all across the country.
Every year, we roll out a Reporting and Feedback Survey to our members to gain insights, help inform the future of the program, and to receive an update on their Cities Power Partnership pledges. The latest report Tracking Progress: 2022 Snapshot of Council Action on Climate Change, summarises the results from the 158 councils who completed 2022’s survey. It also shows how CPP is supporting councils to take effective climate action, and identifies opportunities to enhance that support.read more
