Reporting on Council's carbon emissions

Port Phillip Council's commitment is to 'reduce water use, energy use and waste, while increasing the use of renewables in both council operations and the community' and to report on our performance[Council plan 2.1]
Achievement will look like:
  • Reduction in the organisation's non-renewable energy and potable water consumption
  • Reduction in the community's non-renewable energy and potable water consumption.

The target for reduction in council's carbon emissions is 9.043 tonnes CO2-e*. The quarterly report for April to June 2010 shows the actual result was 10,022 tonnes CO2-e.

The container fridges being used at South Melbourne Market while the 'veggie lane' is being roofed over contributed to us being over target.
