This will be the final distribution of sustainability articles for this year as this Friday would have normally been the final meeting for the year.
Because it is the final email I have taken the liberty of attaching quite a few articles.
You may have heard the announcement from the Victorian government that the budget will include a major household energy efficiency package which is a very significant amount.
I have attached the media release from the Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio.
Those of you who have known me for some time know about my passion for energy efficient and sustainable housing, so you won’t be surprised that I have included two articles on this issue.
Other articles include the ‘State of the Climate Report’, good news of renewable energy developments in NSW and of some major ‘green energy’ projects across Australia.
The final article is about how Australia could become isolated over its inaction on climate.
The Sustainability Zoom meeting on Friday will be the final one for this year. See the link below.
As this will probably be my final email for 2020, I would like to take the opportunity to wish everybody all the best for the coming festive season, and hope that we will be able to have face-to-face meetings in 2021.
The link for the Sustainability Zoom meeting at 10am this Friday, 20th November is:
