Clean manufacturing precincts 

Clean manufacturing precincts 

We are working closely with industry to develop clean manufacturing precincts (CMPs) in NSW. These precincts will play a vital role in helping decarbonise NSW’s industrial regions.

A CMP is created when businesses and other groups in regional industrial cluster work together to access clean infrastructure and technology. This collaboration brings many benefits, including:

  • attracting and creating new low carbon industries
  • helping high emitting industries use clean technology to fast track their emissions reduction.

This initiative is part of the new low carbon focus area, under Net Zero Industry and Innovation. It will help ensure we meet our target of net zero emissions by 2050. 

Decarbonisation roadmaps 

We are in the middle of a competitive funding process to develop CMP decarbonisation roadmaps for the Hunter and Illawarra regions. These roadmaps are a critical first step towards developing CMPs. They will provide a path to accelerate decarbonisation for industrial stakeholders in the region.

Expressions of interest (EOIs) to develop these roadmaps closed in December 2021. We are currently assessing the request for proposals. We will announce the successful applicants in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Stakeholder workshop outcomes

We held targeted stakeholder workshops from June to August 2021 in the Hunter and Illawarra regions.

The workshops brought together a diverse range of stakeholders to share their challenges, opportunities and ideas for industrial decarbonisation. This feedback is contributing to the delivery of CMPs.
