    About

    This Regional Zero Emissions Forum aims to bring together local government, community, and business representatives from across the Loddon Campaspe, Mallee, and Grampians regions to explore emerging opportunities for the region to accelerate progress towards our collective emissions reduction goals. The forum will inform the development of:

    1. A Regional Zero Emissions Roadmap
    2. The Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance Action Plan

    Both documents will identify priority emission reduction projects and advocacy initiatives for the Loddon Campaspe, Mallee and Grampians regions.

    Development of the Regional Zero Emissions Roadmap, including the Forum, is being funded by Regional Development Victoria and is being delivered by the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance and the City of Greater Bendigo, through the Greater Bendigo Climate Collaboration.

    Panel Discussion Topics

    The forum will include keynote speakers and four panel discussions focusing on:

    • Achieving an equitable clean energy transition for households and small businesses
