Greenhouse Action in Newcastle Plan — Newcastle City Council, New South Wales, Australia (Pop 143,000) The need to contain the production and release of Greenhouse gases is a classic case of the need to think globally and act locally. The City of Newcastle has taken a lead. The Greenhouse Action in Newcastle (GAIN) Plan 2001–2008 was developed by Newcastle City Council and its Greenhouse Action Partners (GAP) to address the growing need for local government and the community to manage its impact on the environment. The GAIN Plan provides a basis for achieving the city’s vision to become an international testing ground for energy and resource products and services. An outstanding success, the GAIN Plan has initiated many pioneering projects including Australia’s first bio-diesel fleet and the award-winning Cleaner Production Programme and the Community REFIT project.
