Australia aims to become energy-efficient

February 14, 2012

In the face of global realities and environmental considerations, Australia continues to work toward a viable future.

Those seeking residential property in any state may be happy to know campaigns for sustainability are being enacted locally and nationally.

Major cities have joined the effort, with Brisbane aiming to be carbon neutral by 2026 and Sydney enacting its plan for a sustainable city by 2030.

The federal government recently amped up its effort with the announcement of three new energy efficient packages.

Tackling the challenge with funding towards communities, low-income households and educating the masses, the packages will issue hundreds of millions of dollars toward the initiative.

The programs aim to improve environmentally-sound infrastructure and teach energy-smart decisions to be implemented in the home and the office. 

The financial assistance comes in addition to the $5,000 and $20,000 local grants being offered to communities via the Caring for your Country program.

A range of tactics toward a sustainable future have already been undertaken country-wide, including expanding cycling and foot path networks, increasing water efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.
