Who’s behind Low Carbon Living?

The Low Carbon Living Program has been brought to you by two key organisations: the Low Carbon Living Co-operative Research Centre (LCL CRC) at the University of New South Wales and the Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute, an internationally recognised environmental NGO based in the heart of the Blue Mountains National Park in Katoomba, NSW.

The LCL CRC draws on world class expertise from universities around Australia and has been Australia’s largest effort to introduce low carbon technologies to the market place.

In 2014, the Low Carbon Living CRC partnered with the Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute to successfully implement the pilot phase of the LCL program in the Blue Mountains region. During this pilot phase membership grew from an initial member base of 25 to over 80 businesses, schools and local organisations.
