The Australian Government has released Australia’s whole-of-economy Long-Term Emissions Reduction Plan.

This Plan will help Australia achieve net zero emissions by 2050. It does this by prioritising technologies that can cut emissions while creating jobs and growing our economy.

The Plan outlines how we will:

  • drive down the cost of low emissions technologies
  • deploy these technologies at scale
  • help our regional industries and communities seize economic opportunities in new and traditional markets
  • work with other countries on the technologies needed to decarbonise the world’s economy.

These actions will get Australia to net zero emissions while:

  • preserving Australian jobs
  • taking advantage of new economic opportunities
  • positioning us as a leader as the world shifts to low-emissions technologies.
