How Australia’s industrial sector can flourish in a net-zero world - Podcast

With the new Albanese government committing to cut carbon emissions by 43% by 2030, along with pressure from newly elected independents and Greens MPs, there’s a sense of hope that that environmental policy will progress beyond the years of the climate wars. 

But how can Australia get through the mire of years of climate inaction and confusion, to meet net-zero targets while maintaining employment in industry and our mining reliant economy. Alison Reeve, Deputy Program Director, and Esther Suckling, Graduate Associate, discuss with Kat Clay, how they charted a path in their new report The next industrial revolution.
