City joins cru­sade against cli­mate change

Midland Reporter - - News -

THE City of Swan has joined the Cli­mate Coun­cil’s Cities Power Part­ner­ship to fight cli­mate change and build greener com­mu­ni­ties.

Swan Mayor Mick Wain­wright said be­ing part of the CPP would en­able the City to be a leader in the push for more en­ergy ef­fi­cient and en­vi­ron­men­tally re­spon­si­ble coun­cils.

He said a Cli­mate Coun­cil re­port re­leased last week said lo­cal gov­ern­ments could col­lec­tively lower en­ergy emis­sions by 70 per cent.

“The City of Swan is ex­cited to be in­volved in the Cities Power Part­ner­ship as it al­lows us to ac­tively con­tinue to in­crease our en­ergy ef­fi­ciency in a mean­ing­ful pledge-based pro­gram,” he said.
