Help create a sustainable future by supporting Renew

For 40 years, Renew has played a critical role in promoting and educating the public about sustainability – guiding Australians on every step of their sustainability journey.

In 2020, we are at a critical juncture. Time is running out to arrest the climate crisis and to have a chance of keeping global temperature rise within 1.5 degrees. This decade is critical and no sector is more important to making early inroads than the energy sector.

Buildings constitute 25% of our national carbon footprint. And no organisation has more experience with the environmental impacts and opportunities of residential buildings than Renew.

We can drastically cut the emissions from our housing stock by:

  • building to higher levels of energy performance;
  • installing energy efficient appliances;
  • implementing a mandatory system of energy performance standards and disclosure for existing buildings;
  • weaning ourselves off fossil fuels such as natural gas; and
  • increasing the uptake of renewable energy and storage systems.

At Renew, we need to scale up our reach and impact in this decade before it is too late. We need to change our National Building Code and implement policies to upgrade existing homes across the country. We also need to help those devastated after the summer bushfires to “build back green”.

But we can’t do this without your help, so please make a tax-deductible donation today.

To celebrate our 40th birthday, and the beginning of this critical decade, we need to raise $120,000 before the end of this financial year to progress our work in these key areas. We need to make an even greater impact in helping to make all Australian homes more energy efficient, cheaper to run, and more comfortable to live in, even as we face a changing climate. Your donation will enable us to build a more sustainable future together.
