Blue Mountains CIty Council
Is a Power Partner
As a non-metropolitan council, we’re keen to join forces with other Cities Power Partnership councils to strengthen our climate response.
As we know, regional and rural areas are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, and heightened bushfire risk is something we’re all too aware of in the Blue Mountains.
Being a part of the largest local government initiative on climate change action in the country puts Council in a strong position to accelerate emission reduction through its Carbon Abatement Action Plan
Through the Cities Power Partnership, we can work closely with our neighbours to develop a strong, unified regional climate action plan.Cr Brent Hoare
