Zero Carbon Communities is an exciting initiative delivering positive environmental change across Australia by helping communities reduce local carbon emissions.
Councils and communities have a strong and proud history of leading climate action and many are working towards 100% renewable energy goals and zero emissions targets.
A Zero Carbon Community is any community where people, businesses, clubs, groups and councils are taking action to reduce carbon emissions.
We’re bringing these community champions together to address emissions from the following sectors: Buildings, Energy, Land use, Waste, Transport, and Industry.
Join today – it’s free
It’s free to register and once you’re connected you’ll have access to free resources to help you understand and address the key sectors where carbon emissions can be eliminated.
ZCC is an initiative of Beyond Zero Emissions – an innovative, volunteer-powered climate solutions think tank based in Melbourne.
