For some of Australia's best-known cities, companies and organizations that are part of a United Nations low-carbon initiative, this year's Australia Day will be celebrated, not by barbecues or beach parties, but by going ‘green.' Australian cities, public campaigns, corporations and others have taken on the challenge of lowering carbon emissions by joining the Climate Neutral Network (CN Net), led by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) which seeks to spur global action to achieve climate neutrality. Australian CN Net participants include the cities of Sydney and Brisbane, as well as a music festival and a carbon management company. (UN News Service)
