The CitySwitch program is a successful model of national collaboration by city governments. It is jointly funded by the Cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, North Sydney and several smaller local government councils.
Services to members are delivered by local program managers who understand the local business context. Program resources and campaigns are delivered by a national program office that ensures high quality execution and consistency.
A national steering committee provides strategic input to ensure that the program continues to meet the needs of participating councils and participating members.
CitySwitch engages with State and Commonwealth government to be the voice for office-based businesses and ensure an effective policy context for businesses to achieve net zero.
The National Australian Built Environment Ratings System (NABERS), managed by the NSW Government is an associate of program. It is also a key reporting metric, so that members have an impartial and comparable measure of achievement to benchmark their performance in the built environment.
CitySwitch is seeking local councils to join the program and join us in supporting business to achieve decarbonisation. Please get in contact if you’re interested in becoming a partner Council.
