Climate Change

After a decade of denial and delay, Australia finally has a Federal Government that is taking action on climate change.

Our Powering Australia policy is driving down emissions by:

Legislating our emissions reduction targets of 43% by 2030 and Net-Zero by 2050.

Creating tens of thousands of jobs and apprenticeships in renewable energy production.

Connecting regional renewable energy projects to the national grid.

Making electric vehicles cheaper for Australian consumers.

Building 400 community batteries and 85 solar banks to connect more Australian households to renewable energy.

Ensuring the APS reaches net-zero by 2030, setting an example for the rest of the country.

Using the Safeguard Mechanism to drive down emissions from the biggest polluters.

Investing in agricultural solutions and carbon farming.

Establishing a real-world vehicle fuel testing program to inform consumer choice.


Under Labor's Powering Australia plan, power prices will fall, 600,000 jobs will be created and emissions will plummet. Labor is ensuring that Australia becomes a renewable energy superpower.
