Climate Response Plan

The Climate Response Plan 2021–2031 aims to protect our community from the effects of climate change and reduce both Council and Community greenhouse emissions.

About the plan

  • prepare for the effects of a changing climate.

The plan provides a roadmap for:

  • Council to reach net zero emissions by 2030
  • the Knox community to reach net zero emissions by 2040.
