Climate Action Engagement

Mosman Council has declared a climate emergency and has set ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The response to climate is complex and Council is now preparing a Climate Strategy and Action Plan for the next five years, that will outline potential actions to be assessed against environmental, economic and social outcomes.
