Wyndham City Council

Represented by Fiona Stevenson, Coordinator Green Living


How does your organisation address climate change?

Wyndham City Council's actions to date that address climate change:
  • Change-over of over 17,000 inefficient street lights to energy-efficient lights
  • Installation of 87 solar systems across 69 buildings with a total capacity of 2.55MW
  • 100% renewable electricity from 2022 through a Power Purchase Agreement.
Wyndham currently reports on emissions through the Global Covenant of Mayors and through our own State of the Environment Report.

What is your organisation doing to create a better future?

Through the Resilient Wyndham Strategy:

  • Proportion of mode share for walking and cycling trips to triple by 2040 (Active Transport Strategy)
  • Wyndham City Council operations are carbon neutral by 2023 (excluding the RDF)
  • All new Council buildings are gas free (where appropriate electrical solutions exist)
  • Council decision making aligns to the science-based targets in the Paris Agreement
  • By 2030 all Council fleet passenger vehicles will be low or zero emission
  • By 2030 all Council vehicle purchases will meet best practice emissions standards and use a carbon-neutral power source (where a fit for purpose option is available)
  • By 2040 Wyndham has transitioned to become a zero-carbon community
  • Halve household food waste to landfill by 2030
  • 20% reduction in the waste we generate at home by 2030
  • 90% of the waste we generate at home is kept out of landfill by 2040
  • Wyndham residents are recycling right by 2030 (maximum 5% contamination)
