Net Zero Authority to manage clean energy transformation

A new national Net Zero Authority to coordinate communities’ transformation to a low-carbon economy and enhance the liveability of local communities in Australia has been welcomed by the local government sector.

The authority will engage with local, state and territory governments, regional bodies and other groups to help regions, industries and employers proactively manage the transformation to a clean energy economy.

It’s understood the body will work with councils and local communities for the implementation of transformation actions, with local place-based solutions to enhance the social and economic sustainability of every local community.

The agency will be led by an independent Chair, supported by an Advisory Board, to be announced by the Federal Government soon.
