Born of adversity, driven by hope

Wingecarribee Zero Emissions was an idea that began under the haze of the bushfires, came together during the global pandemic and will continue on for decades.

Our goal is to achieve net zero carbon emission for the Wingecarribee Shire by 2050, if not before. We’re an umbrella organisation created to co-ordinate and support the many existing environmental groups within the Southern Highlands. We’re a not-for-profit run by volunteers, donations and goodwill. 

And if you live in the Southern Highlands, we’re doing all of this for you.

The difference between hope and despair is a good night's sleep!


To achieve net zero emission for the Wingecarribee Shire by 2050, if not before.


To create a sustainable, vibrant and resilient community for current and future generations.


To form alliances, then find and promote initiatives that government, businesses and residents can easily action or support.
