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.
This survey has been developed to help estimate greenhouse gas emissions from Armidale Regional Local Government Area (LGA) household energy consumption methods and habits – information only our residents can provide. By completing this survey, you will be contributing to robust emissions estimates that will help inform appropriate reduction and offset strategies to guide our collective transition to carbon neutrality.
Many organisations are managing their greenhouse gas emissions to position themselves for growth and competitiveness in a lower-emissions future. Businesses are also choosing to go one step further and demonstrate leadership and corporate responsibility by becoming carbon neutral. If your business is interested in becoming carbon neutral, please contact us to discuss how you can take part in Project Zero30.
Project Zero30 is a combined partnership between the Armidale Regional Council, the University of New England, as well as local businesses and community members, with the shared goal of moving the Armidale Local Government Region to net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
