Zero Carbon Communities is an initiative of Beyond Zero Emissions designed to support local communities to reduce emissions and thrive.
Zero Carbon Communities create jobs, support the local economy and help deliver a bright and vibrant society and environment.
Join us to connect with a network of people, clubs, groups, business and industry, investors and councils who are acting to reduce emissions at the local level.
Together we can create a national community committed to a Zero Carbon Australia.

The ABC’s new series Fight for Planet A – Our Climate Challenge is an entertaining, informative and empowering three part series packed with stunts, stats, tools and tips about how we can ALL be part of tackling the climate challenge by reducing our collective carbon emissions.
Zero Carbon Communities is proud to partner with Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge, and is featured in their Community Solutions Plan.
Everyone can now get a free Snapshot of your local community’s carbon emissions.
Snapshot provides nationally consistent, community-wide greenhouse gas profiles for every local government area in Australia. This is a world first! Share your profile to start a conversation about reducing local emissions and the jobs this can create.
“A tool like this is just so amazingly useful to foster and direct discussion, show actions that both Councils and community members are taking and be strategic and effective in planning next actions.” Cristel Chambers – community organiser and campaigner
The Snapshot community climate tool has been developed by Beyond Zero Emissions and Ironbark Sustainability.
