Melbourne joins global greenhouse gases scheme

By Matt Hurlston

Already renowned as one of the world's most liveable cities, Melbourne is set to further enhance its reputation, both in Australia and around the world.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle announced on 25 September that Melbourne, along with Sydney, became the first city from Australia to comply with the Compact of Mayors. This is an international agreement among mayors from around the world, geared towards tackling climate change.

The Lord Mayor emphasises that the move was the latest step in the city's long-term plan to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, and this is sure to be a coup for anyone looking for Carnegie real estate.

"You can't be the world's most liveable city without careful attention to two elements: the prosperity and sustainability of the city," he commented in a recent statement.

The Lord Mayor also announced details on the city's specific emissions targets. Melbourne is aiming to achieve zero net emissions by 2020, he explained, "which is one of the most ambitious goals in the C40 Climate Leadership Group of 78 cities".

"Commitment to change is required at all levels to make this happen: from the community, business and government".

He also called on other Australian cities to take up the challenge and comply with the Compact of Mayors. With a range of cities around the globe having joined the group, spanning from Buenos Aires to Copenhagen and San Francisco, it's time other cities Down Under put themselves on the map too.
