I have the best ranking for climate action in Maling Ward for the 2020 Boroondara Council election on the scorecard published by Boroondara and Kooyong Climate Action.

Boroondara's emission reduction targets are far too low. Boroondara can shift from laggard to leader on climate action by:
- Setting a target net zero greenhouse gas emissions for its operations by 2025
- Setting a target for net zero community emissions by 2030.
- Implementing initiatives and programs to meet these targets, including rapid installation of more solar panels, phasing out natural gas use, transitioning to electric vehicles and providing charging stations
- Providing a program to actively promote and support effective community and business emissions reduction initiatives
If elected, these will be priority concerns for me. I believe actions speak louder than words.
