Climate Clever Co-ops

Mr Josh Wilson MP recently visited our office to learn more about our 'Climate Clever Co-ops' project.  His office supported our application for funding with a Powering Communities Grant.

what is climate clever co-ops?

Climate Clever Co-ops is an affordable and engaging way for housing co-ops and their residents to become leaders in climate action.  The project will conduct a baseline assessment of the carbon emissions of housing co-op residents using the ClimateClever app. ClimateClever is a simple-to-use, WA-developed, online platform which enables users to accurately measure their carbon footprint and understand where and how they can make carbon and cost savings.  Often no or low-cost measures have a significant impact. The results will be used by the housing co-operative to plan for other measures as part of their maintenance planning.
