Zero Carbon Australia Buildings Plan

English
Green Federations / National Parties: 
The Zero Carbon Australia Buildings Plan (ZCA) project is an exciting initiative of Beyond Zero Emissions and the University of Melbourne’s Energy Research Institute. The project is a road map for the transition to a decarbonised Australian economy. The latest and most credible science tell us such a transition is necessary in order to reverse climate disruption. The project draws a blueprint for a zero carbon future for Australia, including a practical plan to fix Australia’s buildings over the next decade. It demonstrates how: All existing buildings can reach zero emissions from their operation within ten years; and Australia can transform its building stock to reduce energy bills, generate renewable energy, add health and comfort to our living spaces, and make our workplaces more productive. While the examples used in the plan are specific to Australia, the concepts are universal, and we hope it will prompt similar thinking and action in countries across the region. Australian Greens International Secretary Bob Hale would be very interested in answering questions or discussing how we can spread this message.
