Beyond Zero Emissions

Beyond Zero Emissions - General Appeal

The world needs to act fast to limit and reverse the devastating effects of climate change on humanity.

Beyond Zero Emissions shows how all sectors of the economy can be decarbonised in ten years through its world-leading research. We focus on solutions that:

  • Enable us to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions
  • Are proven, affordable and relevant for Australian conditions
  • Improve environmental and social conditions.

For more than ten years we have been inspiring action and confidence with bold, credible pathways to zero.

There is more we need to do.

We need to finish our industry research to show Australia how its manufacturing and metals industry can wipe out carbon emissions, prosper and generate jobs. Expand our transport and land use work to develop clear pathways to zero emissions. Produce targeted reports showing how regional areas - like Port Augusta - can transition to zero carbon and thrive.

How will your donation be used?

Our priorities for the next three years include:

Research - industry, transport, land use, agriculture. We’ll also start researching carbon drawdown.

Communication - revitalise our web and social media as key portals for communicating our work, refresh our long-running radio shows on 3CR and podcasting, influence stakeholders and share our vision and work in the media

Engagement - rollout our Zero Carbon Australia program across the country, grow and support our volunteer network.

Eight-five percent of our researchers, technical experts and communicators are volunteers, so your donation goes a long way!

Thank you,

Vanessa, Michael, Imogen and Bob.


PS - Thanks to your support we’ve had great success:

Our pioneering Stationary Energy Plan changed the conversation on renewables in Australia, convincing governments, businesses and communities that 100% renewable electricity was possible

Repowering Port Augusta - a blueprint for replacing coal with solar - galvanised a successful five-year community campaign that resulted in the South Australian Government backing a concentrated solar thermal plant

Renewable Energy Superpower has become the spoken ambition of Australian climate leaders

Our Electric Vehicle report showed Australia could easily and affordably match and even top the UK’s lead on electric vehicles, and was endorsed by the ACT and Queensland Governments

Zero Carbon Communities Guide quickly inspired community confidence and action at the local level

Rethinking Cement - the world’s first report showing how cement can be decarbonised - generated national interest and support across the construction and infrastructure sector within months of its release.
