Climate change is an urgent global challenge with long term implications across all levels of the community. The effects of climate change will likely be felt at a local level with more extreme-weather events in Casey, including dangerous heat waves, longer and more intense fire seasons, drought conditions from decreased rainfall, increased storm activity and flooding, a rise in sea level and a transition to a more northerly climate. These effects will have social, economic, environmental and human health consequences for Casey’s community.

In response, the City of Casey has developed a Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions and tackle the contributing factors of climate change. Council has set an ambitious target to achieve net zero emissions by 2030 or sooner. Council are supporting a target of net zero emissions by 2040 for the community.

In 2022 we consulted the Casey community to hear what actions you wanted prioritised in the plan. By documenting the actions, we now have a clear guide for the work that needs to be done by Council and the community to reach these targets. Climate change will impact everyone; therefore, it is up to all of us to help reduce our carbon emissions
