Have a say on Australia’s emissions reduction targets

Local governments are encouraged to provide feedback on a new issues paper from the Federal Government’s Climate Change Authority.

The 2024 Issues paper: Targets, Pathways and Progress is seeking advice on Australia’s emissions reduction targets, sectoral pathways and progress towards becoming a net zero economy.

The Authority expects to provide advice on Australia’s 2035 emissions reduction targets in October. This will inform the government’s decision on targets to be included in Australia’s next Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.

Later this year, the authority will also provide advice on Australia’s progress towards achieving its emissions reduction targets.
