What is SCEC doing?

Lobbying local governments and institutions to divest from fossil fuels

We want our politicians, of all parties and at all levels, to acknowledge that they must show real leadership by committing to reductions in greenhouse emissions both in Australia and internationally. Across Australia, more than 120 institutions such as local councils, universities and churches have resolved to shift their investments out of the fossil fuel industry.  

SCEC is campaigning for similar ethical action to be taken by the Sunshine Coast Council, the Noosa Council and the University of the Sunshine Coast.

SCEC is proud to partner with WA startup ClimateClever to help support the community to take action on climate change and lower energy and water bills. SCEC receives anonymised data from all homes and schools that sign up to the program on the Sunshine Coast, this data will be used to track the communities progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and will assist in developing initiatives to further reduce emissions.
