Murrindindi Shire Council – Green Building Program

Murrindindi Shire Council engaged CarbonetiX to audit seven of their highest energy consuming sites and produce an engagement video for internal and community stakeholders (click for video).  Sites audited included the Municipal Offices, Alexandra Library, Council Chambers and Shire Hall, and two community centres.  The audits were funded through the Victorian Adaptation and Sustainability Partnership.  The project was called the Murrindindi Green Building Program.


  • To identify and document opportunities to reduce energy, operational costs and greenhouse gas emissions for Council’s highest energy consuming sites
  • To inform the development of an Energy Management Program and business case for Council
  • Empower stakeholders to act on the recommendations put forward by Carbonetix


A range of opportunities were identified during the on-site assessments, enabling the following key benefits:

  • Reduced electricity bills
  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Reduce operational costs

Zoe Blakeney, Coordinator Environmental Program, Murrindindi Shire Council noted:  I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism displayed by CarbonetiX.  Graham was a fantastic support through the project, and was willing to assist with further questions and assistance when asked.  CarbonetiX really understood what we needed, and went out of their way to ensure that the project was delivered in a way that meet our needs.  I liked the approach, because it was personal and did not feel like a template/one size fits all approach to delivery.
