About

Moreland City Council acknowledges we are in a state of climate emergency that requires urgent action by all levels of government, including local Councils.

This is why in 2017/18, Moreland City Council and Moreland Energy Foundation developed Moreland’s Zero Carbon 2040 Framework.

This framework is designed to guide our community to transition to zero carbon by 2040 – 10 years ahead of the State Government’s target for reaching zero emissions in Victoria.

What is the 2040 framework?

The Moreland Zero Carbon – 2040 Framework defines the key priorities for driving emissions reductions across three target areas:

  • energy transition
  • sustainable transport
  • waste and consumption

The key priorities for action and advocacy outcomes within the Framework will be reviewed each five years and re-set for the following five-years.

This Framework builds on the original 2014 Zero Carbon Evolution (ZCE) Strategy and the ZCE – Refresh to 2020.
