Hepburn Z-NET is a collaborative partnership bringing together community groups, organisations, experts and council to shift the Hepburn Shire to zero-net energy by 2025 and zero-net emissions by 2030.

In 2019 we released a blueprint of our Shire’s emissions, with strategies to cut these in Hepburn Shire homes, workplaces, farms, transport and tourism. These strategies were co-developed with community members, considering locally appropriate options.
