Zero Carbon Energy

Zero Carbon Energy is a Sustainability Pillar in our Sustainability Strategy 2021 - 2031. The relevant key principle is: 'Committing to working towards a net zero emissions target is an important step in tackling climate change'.  Our objectives related to this pillar are:

  • Embrace the role of a leader in the community by reducing carbon emissions
  • Aim for the Shire to reduce carbon emissions by half by 2030, and carbon neutral/net zero emissions by 2050
  • Support community projects and industry that promote renewable energy resource use

What We're Doing

Some current and recent projects related to the Zero Carbon Energy pillar include:

  • The Shire of Denmark has had solar panels installed on its Administration Building since 2012
  • The Shire subscribes to Azility's environmental scorekeeper service, to collect and report the energy and water performance data for the Shire’s assets. The subscription allows us to proactively manage our energy and water consumption and costs to make quick decisions, identify basic performance problems and opportunities to improve performance.
