Mayor: Anna Reynolds
The City of Hobart envisions a future of renewable energy, low carbon transport, energy efficient buildings and zero waste landfill. The Council is working with vulnerable communities to strengthen their resilience and sustainability through improved transport and waste management, working towards a low-emissions future. Being part of the Global Covenant of Mayors is critical for linking their global goals with local action.
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy is an international alliance of cities with a shared long-term vision of promoting voluntary action to combat climate change and transition to low-emission and resilient societies. The Global Covenant now includes over 9,130 cities from 120 countries, representing over 775 million people and 10.55% of the total global population, and is the largest global network of councils leading action on climate change.
