Towards Net Zero


Our member councils are at different stages along the net zero path. This funding will allow the MNCJO to assess individual member councils and provide a truly regional approach to emissions reduction through development of a Regional Energy Strategy.

The Joint Organisation Net Zero Acceleration grant is a capacity-building pilot program established to help regional councils reduce their carbon emissions to achieve their part in the State’s Net Zero target of 50 per cent reduction by 2030 and net zero by 2050.

The program is delivered by the NSW Office of Energy and Climate Change (OECC) to address chronic resource constraints in regional areas by funding full-time employees within JOs to lead and coordinate net zero activities for their member councils.
