Australia’s climate is changing

Gippsland has experienced the impacts of climate change that have posed risks to people, animals, and our beautiful environment. We have suffered extreme weather events including; heatwaves, storms, floods, draughts, and fire events that have threatened communities, agriculture, and industry. Our coastal communities are facing inundation, erosion, and sea level rise.

We must act now to avoid the worst climate change scenarios predicted.  We can adapt the way we live. We are working together to make a difference.

Victoria is leading the way with offshore wind targets and legislating to reduce emissions by 80% by 2035, and to bring forward our net zero target to 2045.

GCCN advocated for and fully supports the declaration of the Gippsland Renewable Energy Zone and the recent Federal announcement that Bass Strait off Gippsland as Australia’s first offshore wind zone. Gippsland is at the forefront of the renewable energy transformation.
