Emissions Reduction Actions
The Transition to Zero Emissions
Investors expect the companies they invest in to address their contribution to rising global emissions.
The Transition Needs Businesses
Businesses can impact emissions reductions through their consumption, investment and advocacy. Businesses can move their operations away from high-emissions processes or inputs to zero-emissions alternatives, and transition their workforces to be developing low-emissions products and services.

Beyond Zero Emissions
Electrifying The Manufacturing State
The next industrial revolution is coming as the world swiftly moves to a zero carbon economy. New energy sources have long been essential to economic growth. Today, the new source of energy is cheap wind and solar.
Businesses and manufacturers all over the world are racing to replace fossil fuels with renewables. With our unparalleled resources in solar and wind, Victoria is in the ideal position to capitalise on this moment in history.
Beyond Zero Emissions’ award winning Electrifying Industry plan shows that by switching to renewable electricity it is possible to double manufacturing efficiency, harnessing the power of the sector to drive productivity growth, innovation, exports and create high-quality Victorian jobs.
Electrifying Industry explores the potential of five categories of electrical heating technology:
- industrial heat pumps
- electromagnetic heating – infrared; induction and microwaves
- electric furnaces – resistance, arc and plasma
- renewable hydrogen produced by electrolysis
- heat storage – storing electricity as heat.
