The City of Mandurah has been taking action on Climate Change since joining the Cities for Climate Protection Program (CCP) in 1999 and continues to implement projects to help reduce our emissions as an organisation and community.

There are a number of ways that community members can get involved in reducing their own carbon footprint. 

There are lots of little things you can do to help reduce emissions. These include:

Saving Energy at Home

  • Find out how to save energy by using it carefully in your home
  • Turn off lights when not in use
  • Turn down the heating or cooling and check central heating timers – there's no point heating the house after we have left for school or work
  • Use the Energy Rating Calculator for home appliances
  • Wait and fill the dishwasher and washing machine with a full load, instead of half loads more frequently
  • Hang out the washing instead of tumble drying it
  • Fill the kettle with only as much water as you need
  • Compare your household electricity bill to the average household in your area
  • Discover which gas appliances can save energy in your home
  • Take shorter showers to save electricity and/or gas
  • Switch to low energy light bulbs
