Australia’s state and territory governments have all committed to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 – or earlier. And the Federal Government has indicated they’d like to meet that goal too. But to get there, Australia needs to dramatically cut its emissions across each sector of the economy. Some sectors, such as transport, have had lower emissions since the COVID-19 pandemic, but those emissions are set to rebound to pre-pandemic levels. Australia is not on track for net zero, and urgently needs good policies to push its emissions down.
Join Alison Reeve, Energy and Climate Change Fellow, and James Ha, Associate, as they discuss their new report series Towards Net Zero with Kat Clay, Head of Digital Communications.
