We need your help!

Climate change is a reality that affects us all, and it's time to come together as a community to make a positive impact. The City of Launceston is committed to reducing emissions and working towards a more sustainable future, but we can't do it alone. We need your help to achieve our collective goals and build a Low Carbon Launceston. Together let's create a greener, cleaner, and more vibrant Launceston for everyone!

The City of Launceston is working with residents, businesses, industry and community groups to deliver an emissions reduction plan to provide our community with realistic actions and timeframes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve quality of life for our community and natural environment, and reduce the cost of living.

While the City of Launceston is committed to reducing Council's operational emissions, these account for less than one percent (1%) of total Launceston community emissions (excluding landfill emissions). To address climate change and reduce our emissions, both council-led and community-led action is necessary.

'Low Carbon Launceston' will provide a pathway to reduce emissions generated from the wider Launceston community, including residential, business and industry.

Emissions from various sources are contributing to climate change, affecting our environment and the quality of life in our city.

We have national and state objectives to meet, including reducing emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

Emissions reduction efforts also have economic benefits, including reduced living costs and job creation in the green economy.
