Aiming for 43% emissions drop by 2030 and net zero by 2050

AUSTRALIA’S House of Representatives has passed the Federal Government’s Climate Change Bill 2022, which will enshrine into law Anthony Albanese’s election pledge to cut emissions by 43% below 2005 levels by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050.

Passed just 75 days after the Labor Party won the election for the first time in nine years, the bill is an announcement to the world that the decade of inaction and denial is over. “Australia is out of the naughty corner in international forums and we are once again engaging with the global community who understand the importance of acting on climate change,” Prime Minister Albanese said.
