Climate Act Now

About this Climate Action

The Climate Act is a proposed law to ensure the long-term safety, security and prosperity of Australia by achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.

Climate change is real for Australia, with immediate and deepening risks to our natural environment, economy and way of life. Last summer’s unprecedented bushfires are a mark of the worst of those risks, and how they will affect some communities more than others. But there are also opportunities to prosper, given our enormous natural, human and financial wealth.

This Act would ensure Australia has a clear and positive national response to the challenges of climate change. That is what a large and growing majority of Australians call for, and what Australia needs.

It will ensure that Australia has:

  • A Net Zero emissions target by 2050, getting there through emissions reduction plans and emissions budgets
  • Risk assessments and adaptation plans, so that the different parts of our continent and economy know the risks of climate change and can prepare for them
  • Technology readiness assessment, so that we know the existing and emerging ways we can reduce emissions, with the least risk and cost
  • An independent advisory commission (IAC), that can advise the Government, transparently and independently, on our national needs and plans.

In putting this law in place, Australia will be amongst several other countries with effective climate laws in place, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and New Zealand.
