The Government will seek to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions by 15 to 20 per cent (from 2005 levels) by the year 2020, setting Victoria on the path to net zero emissions by 2050.

- 29 local governments representing more than 3 million Victorians
- school and tertiary institutions with more than 240,000 students
- 80 community groups with more than 180,000 members
- 224 businesses with a total annual revenue of more than $209 billion and more than 229,000 employees
