Our projects

ClimateWorks partners with business and government on projects that identify the most cost effective opportunities to reduce Australia's greenhouse gas emissions, address the barriers that are preventing those opportunities from being taken up, and measure Australia's progress towards achieving our emissions reduction goals.

To achieve these outcomes, our projects take an evidence-based approach. We draw on the expertise of others, and complement this with our own innovative research and strong focus on stakeholder engagement. 

We are committed to delivering work that is of the highest quality. This has been recognised through several awards, and numerous citations in reports by government, research organisations, industry associations and international NGOs.

Australia's Energy Productivity Potential

Energy is a fundamental input to any modern economy, and governments around the world are taking steps to ensure that energy - like labour, capital and other economic inputs - is used productively. ClimateWorks’ new report - Australia’s Energy Productivity Potential - shows that Australia could nearly double its energy productivity by 2030 by investing in the modernisation of our energy system and taking advantage of recent technological developments.
