From the banks of the Yarra to the trees that line our streets and world-famous parks, Melbourne’s unique environment and coveted liveability are at risk from the effects of climate change.We know action is needed now if Melbourne is to remain a liveable city for future generations to visit, work and live in.
City of Melbourne recognises that we are in a climate emergency and that swift and ambitious action is required. We are leading by example with a number of climate change actions to reduce our own impact and help others do the same.
