Useful information

While every council will have a unique emissions profile, most emissions will come from common sources. 

By reducing emissions and moving to net zero, councils can help to limit climate change and reduce the impacts of climate change in their region.

Local governments have a crucial role in reducing emissions to mitigate the impacts of climate change for their communities. 

To achieve net zero emissions, councils need to plan and develop a strategy for their operational and community emissions.

Community groups can make small changes to reduce carbon emissions and reduce negative impacts on the environment.

Understanding where your emissions come from is an essential first step to preparing your net zero strategy.
