Burdekin Shire Council has made a commitment to join a rapidly growing list of local governments across Australia in the adoption of the Cities for Climate Protection™ (CCP) Program.
At the end of 2002 some 164 Australian local governments representing approximately 64% of the population had committed to the program. In doing so, these local governments have undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through sustainable, long-term practices.
By committing to the CCP™ program, Burdekin Shire council is showing a long term commitment to the future well-being of the Shire and its constituents. With community understanding and support for the program and Council’s investment in sustainable practices for greenhouse gas abatement, benefits will eventually flow on to industry, the wider community and future Shire generations.
