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.

Household energy survey

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.
