Barwon Water's Zero Emissions program
Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Government category
Barwon Water has embraced an ambitious plan to take action on climate change by achieving 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2025 and zero net emissions by 2030.
By adopting the carbon reduction hierarchy of ‘avoid’, ‘minimise’, ‘switch’, ‘sequester’ and ‘offset’, it is already leading the region’s transition to a more sustainable future. With the program well underway, Barwon Water is already delivering projects totalling almost 50 per cent of its renewable electricity target.
