Our Mission / Objective

Renew (formerly known as Alternative Technology Association) is a national, not-for-profit organisation that inspires, enables and advocates for people to live sustainably in their homes and communities. Established in 1980, Renew provides expert, independent advice on sustainable solutions for the home to households, government and industry.

We have helped thousands of households save money and reduce their environmental footprint with information on energy efficiency, solar power, rainwater tanks, materials reuse and waste.

Renew engages with more than 250,000 people each year around Australia and beyond. We work with more than 6700 members in a network of 14 active branches throughout the country. Our community of climate change action includes readers of our two market-leading sustainability magazines ReNew and Sanctuary, attendants at our Speed Date a Sustainability Expert, EV Expo and Sustainable House Day events, users of our online information and calculators, people contacting our advice service, and our research and advocacy partners.

Renew advocates in government and industry arenas for easy access to sustainable solutions as well as continual improvement of the technology, information and products needed to change the way we live.

Our Beneficiaries

United with our members and partners by 2025 sustainable living in
Australia will be:

• A common expectation for Australian households
• Affordable and accessible
• Supported and promoted by all levels of government
• Occurring at a scale where it is self-sustaining.

Projects in Progress

A gift to Renew’s Climate Resilient Homes goes directly to catalysing systematic change to improve the housing of all Australians, reduce our carbon emissions and ensure our homes can cope with a changing climate.

Some of our early wins include:

  • The COAG Energy Ministers passed a circular resolution to approve the recommendations in the Trajectory for Low Energy Homes.
  • Renew in collaboration with ACOSS  coordinated more than 50 other community, environment, industry and local government groups to sign a joint statement urging Energy Ministers to commit to higher energy performance standards for all Australian homes.
  • Our advocacy efforts in representing consumers is highlighted in the Trajectory for Low Energy Homes report.
  • Based on the COAG Energy Ministers recommendation the Building Ministers Forum made directions to the Australian Building Codes Board to investigate implementation of the trajectory into the National Construction Code.
  • The COAG Energy Ministers have also committed to a 12-month process to look into how we can improve the performance of existing homes. This was one of our major asks.

Next steps are in place for both new and existing homes, but we need support from people like you, who understand how important it is to make our homes healthier and safer, more equitable and resilient to a changing climate.

Please make a tax-deductible donation today for the future that all Australians deserve.
