Energy and Emissions Reduction Strategy

Shire of Mundaring's Emissions Reduction Strategy 2024 sets a new target of 70 per cent less than the 2016/2017 baseline by 2030, and identifies the actions that will help the Shire to
achieve that target.

Actions include:

  • developing a low-emissions fleet transition plan
  • further improving energy efficiencies and adding more renewable energy to community facilities
  • Prioritising sustainable design and energy efficiency in all new construction projects

Emissions and Energy Data Analysis Report 2022/2023

The Shire is not obliged to report emissions under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme (NGERS) or any other legislative framework. The Shire has chosen to monitor and report emissions annually in order to track progress towards the Emissions Reduction Target.

Corporate emissions are monitored and analysed using the Azility Platform with assistance from Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) through the regional Achieving Carbon Emissions Reduction (ACER) program.

Solar panels on Shire buildings

Significant savings have already been made on energy for the Shire Administration Centre, with solar panels added to the Mundaring Arena and Boya Community Centre and Library in 2020.

You can view live production and consumption data via the following solar dashboards:

Encouraging community effort to reduce energy use and emissions

While the Shire is focussed on reducing its own carbon footprint, we also encourage community efforts to reduce energy use and emissions. 

Residents, schools and businesses can access energy and sustainability information and discounts through the Shire's participation in the Switch Your Thinking and ClimateClever programs.
