Zali Steggall OAM MP is urgently calling for Australia to commit to a minimum 75% emissions reduction by 2035. To meet the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5C, host a COP Summit and emerge as a leader in climate action, Australia needs to match our ambition to our international peers and accelerate emissions reduction.
Everyday use of electricity and transport, as well as manufacturing, commercial and building use,
generates the bulk of Australia's emissions. That's why everyone needs to get involved.
Industrial processes and product use
Clear ambition and plans for each sector aligned with a target of 75 by 35,
will deliver jobs and growth across the whole Australian economy.
Renewables and low emissions projects can deliver 1.8 million new jobs in the regions and communities where they are needed most. (BZE)
The business case is compelling and broadly accepted – Australia stands to lose $3.4 trillion by 2070 if we don’t act fast, but could gain $680 billion with rapid, focused action. (Deloitte)
Australia is uniquely positioned to produce green steel, aluminium, hydrogen and more. Making green steel onshore by refining our own iron ore could avoid 1.5 billion tonnes of emissions and generate 10 times the profits. (CC)
Australia is ranked in the bottom 10 countries for climate action – a lowly 55 out of 63 nations on the
