our Armidale Local Government Area

Project Zero30 aims to bring

Project Zero30 will achieve its goal of bringing the Armidale Regional Council’s Local Government Area to zero emissions through a unique partnership between science and the local community.

The inaugural Zero30 workshop brought together members of the local community, business owners, the Armidale Regional Council and the University of New England, where participants were given the opportunity to collaborate on this exciting project (pre-COVID19 restrictions).

The workshop was able to identify achievable mitigation and adaptation measures, which can be offered to the community to address climate change.

Zero30 will achieve certification of the Armidale Local Government Area through the Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard for Precincts.

The Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard will help us to manage our greenhouse emissions and achieve our goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.
