Submission: Review of Tasmania’s Climate Change Act and developing the next Climate Action Plan

by Audrey Quicke and Eloise Carr

Tasmania should position itself as a climate change leader by setting a target of net-zero emissions by 2035, underpinned by 5-yearly interim targets and sectoral emissions targets. Electrifying transport, buildings, and industry, as well as reducing residential and industrial gas use, and offsetting agricultural emissions will be key to Tasmania’s climate transition. Conservation of Tasmania’s blue carbon sinks has important potential to contribute to climate change mitigation.
