Geelong Renewables Not Gas (GRNG) was formed in response to Viva Energy’s proposal to build a gas terminal in Corio Bay. We are proudly independent, non-partisan and funded by donations from our community.
We’re a diverse bunch from different local suburbs and backgrounds, including North Geelong residents directly affected by the proposal, people passionate about fishing and boating, and people concerned about pollution and the climate crisis.
Together with other local organisations like Geelong Sustainability, we’ve put on big events including the Geelong Energy Futures Forum in April 2021 (attended by the Victorian Energy and Environment Minister). We’ve also run stalls, training and there’s more to come!
GRNG is run by ACF Community Geelong. This is an independently organised group backed by the Australian Conservation Foundation, Australia’s national environment organisation. The ACF community includes 700,000 people across Australia who speak out for the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places and wildlife we love.
GRNG is also supported by other environment and community groups, including Environment Victoria, which was involved in the successful campaign to stop a gas terminal being built at Westernport Bay.
