This is climate action

Western Australia

Western Australians are taking action on climate change for a cleaner future. Projects are already underway, creating stronger communities and more opportunities for future generations. Western Australia is moving away from coal to reliable and affordable energy. We are working to ensure homes and businesses can be powered by renewable resources, backed by our gas and public energy assets. And already, over one third of our electricity comes from renewable sources like solar and wind.

Whether we are individuals, communities, businesses or industry, we can all play a part in reducing our carbon footprint to protect our environment and lifestyle.
