Newcastle’s plan to tackle climate change


City of Newcastle is preparing to unveil its 2025 plan to tackle climate change.

The action plan will outline specific goals and priorities for the next five years, such as additional clean energy initiatives, resource efficiency, emissions reductions in supply chains and more sustainable transport.  

An online information session will be held on Thursday 28 May at midday to provide further information on council’s current and future initiatives before the draft plan goes on public exhibition later in the year.  

 “People can learn about the goals we’re looking to adopt in tackling climate change during the month-long public exhibition period,” Lord Mayor Cr Nuatali Nelmes said.

“I encourage everyone to let us know what they think should be prioritised and what role not only the city but businesses and the community should take to realise net zero emissions.” 

The City has already begun transitioning to electric vehicles, installing electric vehicle charging stations and investigating the use of electric trucks to reduce diesel usage and further cut emissions.
