Climate and energy

We recognise that climate change is a significant global issue that will be experienced at a local level, and see it as our role to assist the community to begin to adapt to climate hazards and risks and reduce their carbon footprints.

The City of Hobart is committed to finding practical and effective ways to address climate change issues and improve energy use within the Hobart municipal area. It is also working collaboratively with southern Tasmanian councils to share knowledge, act to minimises potential risks, reduce emissions and take advantage of the opportunities that arise out of changes in the climate.
