City of Ryde Net Zero Emissions Pathway

Consultation closed on 09 December 2020

The City of Ryde is seeking your input through a survey to create a Net Zero Emissions Pathway for both Council’s own operations and community emissions.

WHAT DOES NET ZERO EMISSIONS MEAN?

Net Zero Emissions means that any emissions of greenhouse gases generated are balanced by the removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. In practice this means reducing emissions as far as possible, then offsetting the remainder through activities such as tree planting, soil management, carbon capture and storage.

WHY IS COUNCIL DEVELOPING A NET ZERO EMISSIONs PATHWAY?

Council is developing the Net Zero Emissions Pathway to further its commitment to reduce emissions, climate change impacts and plan for a sustainable future. This is in accordance with the NSW Government’s goal for Net Zero Emissions by 2050, the Greater Sydney Commission’s North District Plan, City of Ryde’s Local Strategic Planning Statement and Council's climate emergency declaration.

We would like to hear your feedback and ideas to ensure we have the right priorities, initiatives and strategies to meet the goal of achieving Net Zero Emissions. 

WHAT HAS COUNCIL DONE SO FAR TO MOVE TOWARDS NET ZERO EMISSIONS?

Council has already undertaken steps to reduce both operational and community emissions.
