WinZero Strategy

Net Zero Emissions

WinZero has been formed to inspire and lead the Wingecarribee community as a whole to be net zero emissions by at the latest 2050 

Limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius would require ‘rapid and far-reaching’ transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities.  We need “All-In” with Government, Businesses and Individuals all playing their part.

"This is the decade and we are the generation"
Christina Figueres
UN Climate Change Convention

" We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. "


Develop, promote and enact actions to address climate change in an urgent and real way within – Wingecarribee, NSW, Australia and the World. And in doing so transition the Wingecarribee Shire to net zero emissions.


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


To form broad alliances in our community to transition the Shire to net zero emissions in the next decade by identifying suitable existing and emerging initiatives that council, businesses and residents can implement.
