Collaborating to accelerate the transition to net zero
We work with industry and government to facilitate the adoption of zero and low-emission technologies at scale.

Businesses and governments in Australia have committed to be net zero by 2050 and are investing significant resources to reach this goal. While the deployment of renewable electricity is a crucial step, addressing harder to abate emissions requires technologies such as electrification and innovations in industrial and agricultural processes.

To support these efforts, the Net Zero Institute is developing new fuels such as green hydrogen, low-emission industrial products such as cement, and strategies for managing agricultural land to increase soil carbon. We collaborate with industry and government bodies to facilitate the adoption of zero and low-emission technologies at scale, as well as those seeking commercial opportunities in the development and deployment of low emissions technologies. 

There's no silver bullet to address climate change and it cannot be solved by one researcher, institution or company alone. It requires all of us. There is too much at stake for our efforts to be siloed
Professor Deanna D'Alessandro, Director of the Net Zero Institute

We're working with:

  • The construction industry to design net-zero buildings
  • Automotive manufacturers to develop new fuels and combustion processes to increase fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions
  • Insurance companies to develop policies that will enable the emergence of a robust CO2 removal industry
  • Energy providers to develop geosequestration technology that will enable sustainable capture and safe storage of atmospheric carbon
  • Multiple industry partners to recycle waste plastic into valuable new products 
  • Government to create incentives for the uptake of low-emission technologies, products and services.
