How we work
Our collaborative approach helps key players in our region create practical, tailored climate solutions across the whole economy.
1. Energy efficiency and conservation
Choose assets and equipment that use less energy maximise the energy we already use in buildings, industry, transport and infrastructure. Implement circular economy principles and shift away from low carbon products and services where possible.
2. Decarbonise electricity
Encourage and assist the transition to zero-carbon electricity sources, like solar and wind supported by battery storage.
3. Electrify and switch to cleaner fuels
Switch all possible energy-using activity to clean-energy sources like renewable electricity or bioenergy and everything else to low-emissions alternatives.
4. Reduce non-energy emissions and offset
Reduce emissions by improving processes, shifting inputs and consumption patterns, or through carbon capture and storage. We offset the rest through bio-sequestration.
1. Agenda setting research
Build the case for action through evidence-rich data.
2. Applied research
Translate research into practical information, tailored to organisational needs.
Work with business and policy decision-makers to enable action.
Engage decision-makers and third parties to build understanding and support for action.
5. Build Capacity
Infuse our future work and the work of others with what we've learned.
Where we work
We work across Australia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific to mitigate risks and create climate solutions. Our region has a critical role to play in reaching net zero, and the potential to grow because of it.
Energy and industry
The energy and industry sectors influence the entire economy of Australia and many of our neighbours in Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
Whole of economy
System transformation across the economies of Australia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific will improve emissions reduction efforts in line with global climate targets.
