Australia is on track to meet and beat its 2030 Paris target according to new data released today.
Australia’s Emissions Projections 2020 report shows that we are on track to beat our 2030 target by 403 million tonnes, including 459 million tonnes of past overachievement.
The projections are prepared in line with international guidelines adopted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) guidelines. Reporting Australia's emissions projections also fulfils one of Australia's reporting requirements under the UNFCCC.
