Council's key climate and energy policies are the Icon for application/pdf Climate 2020 Action Plan (8.18 MB) and Icon for application/pdf Securing the Future Adaptation Plan (4.57 MB), which seek to reduce emissions and encourage people to adapt to our changing environment.

Through action 5.1 of the Securing the Future Adaptation Plan, Council has also developed the Icon for application/pdf Manningham City Council Food Security Plan 2016-2021 (2.74 MB). That plan aims to assist in creating a sustainable food system that allows economic and physical access to locally sourced food for individuals and businesses, whilst also providing the capacity for readily obtaining information for decision making that leads to healthy food choices.

In addition, Council tracks organisational energy use and carbon emissions through the Ecofootprint Project and initiates activities in house through its Green Office Green Organisation Program (GOGO). 
Please view the Icon for application/pdf Ecofootprint Report 15-16 (456.63 KB) for more information.
