Noosa Council approved the development of a Carbon Reduction & Energy Efficiency Plan to drive cultural change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The plan will:

  • Outline Council’s direction in reducing greenhouse gas emissions for the next 5 years;
  • Increase efficiency in natural resource use for households, businesses and in Council’s operations including: short term (annual) actions, particularly in the four focus areas of: buildings and home energy usage; renewable energy supply; transport and waste management;
  • Build community awareness of increasing energy costs, more efficient energy use, and developing habits and initiatives to reduce energy use at home and in buildings (e.g. installing solar panels; changing lighting to LED).
