Energy Efficiency Description:

The objective of LivingGreener.gov.au was to deliver a single, user-friendly government website to link households to all Commonwealth, state, territory and local government sustainability programmes. LivingGreener enabled ready access and therefore greater uptake of environmental programmes for sustainability (energy, water, waste and personal transport) by Australian householders. The website was designed to be the central hub for Australians to find information, inspiration and action on their journey towards living more sustainably. The website was designed to give them the tools they required and encouraged them to go further than they would have. LivingGreener also included a number of Life Events guides and Real Stories from users and engaged with Australian audiences using social media as well as a phone line backup.
