A new emissions reduction target of 43% by 2030 is set to pass the Senate in coming weeks. The Australian Government has also noted their intention to sign onto the Global Methane Pledge, a shared goal to reduce global methane emissions 30% by 2030.
But what does that mean for Australia’s farmers? What impacts, if any, should farmers be expecting?
How is that different from the red meat sector’s carbon neutral by 2030 goal? Or Australian Pork’s net zero by 2025? Or the majority of states having a 50% reduction by 2030 target?
In this webinar, What do emissions reduction targets mean for farmers?, is your opportunity to find out the answers to these questions any others relating to the new emissions targets.
In this webinar, What do emissions reduction targets mean for farmers?, you'll hear from Polly Hemming, the Australia Institute, and Liam Walsh, Climateworks Centre, explain the impacts and opportunities of these policies for farmers.
This is an exciting first step, but more needs to be done. This webinar is to help people understand what the new target means for individual farmers and the broader Australian community, as well as how these new numbers interact with other emissions targets.
