Mayor: Rhys Williams
The City of Mandurah has been committed to action on climate change for almost 20 years and is involved in a host initiatives to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. As a coastal city, climate adaptation measures are a key priority, including protection of the coast, waterways and wetlands. Council's Environmental Sustainability Strategy 2016-2021 sets out a comprehensive vision for a healthy environment that supports their community, and aligns their local commitments with global action on climate through the Global Covenant of Mayors.
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.
