Communities play an essential and active part in promoting sustainability and reducing carbon pollution.
There are programs already in place to help public facilities, schools, community organisations and support groups lower their environmental impact. Such programs can fund a wide range of energy saving initiatives.
The NSW Climate Change Fund supports each of these programs.
In addition to providing support for community groups and organisations to save power, a program 'Energymark' was also used to foster and encourage discussion around energy and climate change issues in the broader NSW community.
Energymark is an on-the-ground education initiative providing individuals the opportunity to lead discussions at work, home and in their community – with support and education resources provided by our partner CSIRO.
