City of Launceston is a member of the Cities Power Partnership (CPP), Australia’s largest network of local councils leading the way to a thriving, zero emissions future made up of over 150 councils from across the country. As part of the partnership, we have committed to five pledges focusing on sustainable transport, renewable energy and divestment from fossil fuel investments.
City of Launceston aims to achieve all CPP pledges by 2030.
The City of Launceston's Sustainability Action Plan(PDF, 4MB) includes and recognises the CPP pledges, including them in the Sustainability Action Plan reporting framework. Council will also report on the CPP pledges directly by contributing updates to the Climate Council's annual reporting and feedback survey.
