Developed in collaboration with ClimateWorks Australia, Monash’s Net Zero initiative is recognised on the global stage for its commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions across all four of its Australian campuses by 2030, leading the way to a 100% renewable future.

The Net Zero initiative is among 15 projects awarded by the UN from a pool of more than 560 applications, showcasing how businesses, governments and communities all across the world are successfully tackling climate change.

Presented to Monash at the Climate Week conference in New York, the Momentum for Change Award is spearheaded by the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat.

“This award is an affirmation of the commitment Monash has made to address climate change and its effects,” said Professor Margaret Gardner AO, President and Vice-Chancellor.
