This campaign puts the spotlight on the need for improving the efficiency and reducing the cost and environmental impacts of street lighting. ECO-Buy is proud to support the Give Our Streets The Green Light campaign as it speaks directly to our vision; that every purchasing decision made in Australia takes the environment into account. There are literally thousands of lamps across Victorian municipalities that could be upgraded to safer and more sustainable alternatives, representing a thousand opportunities to make a tangible difference to climate change. As the call to action suggests – it’s time to give our streets the green light!
Hugh Wareham, CEO, ECO-Buy
Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action
Streetlights are a major source of greenhouse emissions so it’s very heartening for our Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action member councils to see other councils from around Victoria joining this campaign to get federal and state government backing for an upgrade. Here’s hoping we will soon see the dramatic greenhouse emissions savings from this sector that has been delayed for far too long.
Terry White, Co-ordinator, Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action.
Northern Alliance for Greenhouse Action
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by improving streetlight energy efficiency is a high priority for NAGA and its member Councils. We have led the investigation of energy efficient streetlighting technology for a number of years. The technology is ready and it is time to roll out. It’s great to see the Municipal Association of Victoria and Maribyrnong City Council spearheading this campaign to help remove the remaining barriers to rollout including upfront cost. We look forward to working in partnership with the Federal and State Governments to achieve these energy efficiency savings for the community as a whole.
