Hobart has a unique natural and built environment with over 60% of the municipal area native vegetation.

The City of Hobart is leading the community in responding to climate change, having reduced our own greenhouse gas emissions by over 70% since 2000 and committing to a further 26% emission reduction by 2020.

We deliver programs to help the community take action to save energy and reduce emissions Home Energy Audit Toolkit and we are reducing the waste being sent to landfill under our City of Hobart Waste Strategy 2015–30(PDF, 3MB).
