Transitioning towards net zero


The Australian Government has committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 and has legislated a national emissions reduction target of at least 43% by 2030 (compared to 2005 levels). The Queensland Government has committed to net zero emissions by 2050, along with an interim Queensland emissions reduction target of 75% by 2035.

Council’s Sustainability Strategy’s strategic priority ‘Transition towards net zero emissions’ helps to focus attention on the actions necessary to align with national and state policies and targets; strengthen our community, environmental and economic resilience; and position us to make the most of emerging opportunities for our region.
