Achieving Ballarat Net Zero 2030

   IMG 2335

On 21 November 2018, the Ballarat City Council passed a Notice of Motion from Councillor Belinda Coates acknowledging the climate emergency

On 3 April 2019 Ballarat City Council endorsed the Carbon Neutrality and 100% Renewables Action Plan with a goal of net-zero emissions for council by 2025

On 24 March 2021 City of Ballarat Council unanimously endorsed an aspirational community-wide target of Net Zero emissions by 2030. 

These are outstanding goals but now the community needs to get on board and support and encourage and help deliver these breakthroughs. The first opportunity that arises is to make a submission on the draft budget for 2021-2022 prior to June 7 2021.

We are concerned that there are no mentions in the draft of specific allocations to achieving the stated emissions reductions goals.

Make your short submission here: Draft Budget 2021-2022 | mySay - City of Ballarat In the absence of any references to climate or emissions you may like to make a general statement about the need to address the goals or you could highlight an initiative that you believe will result in the best emissions reductions. Get in touch if you need more support with your submission.
