Since 2006, Council has used a third-party carbon reporting system to measure and report on carbon abatement actions undertaken by the organisation.
The reporting system collects utility information and data on actions (such as capital costs and emissions reductions) on behalf of Council, then summarises the data in a format that can be used to inform future investment decisions.
In addition to data collated by the reporting system, Council will monitor the progress of actions to ensure that the organisation meets its commitments. This monitoring process will take place half yearly and feed into Council’s One Planet Living reporting process.
The Action Plan will be reviewed and updated on a bi-annual basis.
