Climate Clever

The Shire of Esperance is now a Climate Clever Partner!

Climate Clever is a free, online platform used to measure the carbon footprint of homes and businesses and schools. Climate Clever was featured on the ABC series “Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge” where the school saved 30% on their utility bills in just four months!

The Shire of Esperance chose to partner with Climate Clever to work towards reducing our emissions as per the Shire of Esperance’s Local Government Climate Change Declaration.

What does this mean for residents?

Residents, businesses and schools simply sign up to the free Climate Clever website.

First, a baseline emissions measurement is recorded with the easy to use calculator, next an audit is done to identify what appliances are consuming resources.

Climate Clever then suggests actions from its list that can be implemented to save money and reduce the carbon footprint of users. Progress is tracked within the app and lastly, offsets can be purchased to become carbon neutral if desired.

As a partner with Climate Clever, the Shire of Esperance has the ability to view emissions reductions from a community perspective, allowing us to track our progress towards reducing carbon emissions.
