Australian success in a net zero future

The Australian Government is investing for Australian success in a net zero future.

Australia's targets for decarbonising our economy are enshrined in law. These laws require Australia to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 43% (compared to 2005 levels) by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050.

All Australian governments are working together to transform our energy systems to deliver cheap, clean, and reliable energy. The Australian Government is targeting 82% renewable energy in our electricity grids by 2030.

The Australian Government is leveraging our nation’s comparative and competitive strengths in renewable energy and minerals to unlock Australia’s Renewable Energy Superpower potential:

  • Australia’s abundant, reliable and affordable clean energy will power a new generation of manufacturing and industry.
  • Australia will export clean energy technologies and know-how, and clean energy itself, to help our neighbours reduce their emissions and bolster their energy security.

These efforts all support delivery of the Australian Government’s vision for a Future Made in Australia.

To realise this vision, the Australian Government is backing Australia’s comparative advantages and national interest. This includes economic reforms to drive growth, improve competition, lift productivity and create the next generation of prosperity and opportunity.

These reforms will benefit our nation and our global partners.
