LeadWest is the regional organisation for Melbourne's west. LeadWest is focused on advocacy for the region. We are a nonpartisan and not-for-profit, membership-based organisation.
Our objective is to foster and undertake actions that will support sustainable growth and development of the region. To this end, LeadWest aims to build on the existing social, economic and environmental capacity of the region and to plan and create a sustainable future for the well being of the communities of the region.
LeadWest, the Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action, and the Western Melbourne Regional Development Australia Committee worked together to develop a strategy to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in Melbourne's West and help facilitate the region’s transition to a low carbon future. The strategy is known as Low Carbon West.
LeadWest is committed to tackling climate change. That’s why we’ve made the TAKE2 pledge. Check out the work we’ve been doing to reduce our own emissions, emissions from all sources in Melbourne's west, and our plans for the future.
