Beyond Zero Emissions is an Australian research and education organisation.
Since 2006 we’ve helped governments, businesses and individuals address one fundamental question: How can Australia rapidly transition to a zero-emissions economy?
Our research programs – Zero Carbon Australia and Zero Carbon Communities – show how Australia and Australian local government areas can achieve 10-year reductions of greenhouse gas emissions from the transport, electricity, land use, export, buildings and industry sectors.
Our work is carried out by a small staff of experts, with the help of academic institutions and a large network of volunteer scientists, engineers and economists.
We are funded by private foundations and concerned individuals.
In 2016 Beyond Zero Emissions’ work was recognised by The Lauder Institute’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program with a new global think tank ranking of 6th for “Think Tanks to Watch in 2016“.
