Recorded: Thursday 30 April 2020
Anna Skarbek, CEO of ClimateWorks Australia, will discuss ClimateWorks' new report Decarbonisation Futures, and the role the demand side can play in the economic recovery on the other side of this crisis.
ClimateWorks Australia has released a groundbreaking new report – Decarbonisation Futures – that sets out how Australia can reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.
All eight state and territory governments, and many leading businesses, have either set targets or aspirations to reduce emissions to net zero by 2050. ClimateWorks has found that Australia can achieve net zero emissions before 2050 through a mixture of largely mature technologies in electricity generation and buildings, and mature and emerging technologies in transport, industry and agriculture.
