2030 Targets announced! ERF gets additional $2.4bill.
August 14, 2015 Louisa Kiely
Hey there – Gosh, the news just keeps on coming. Due to the big Paris conference coming up in December, many countries are getting ready to take part and Australia needed to come up with its post 2020 greenhouse gas reduction targets as we prepare to be part of the negotiations.
No matter what your views on climate change, this market IS going to develop and for the Land Sector not to disappear in favour of big companies we need to engage.
So, our new target is 26-28% reduction on 2005 levels by 2030.
There is not a lot of detail, except that Minister Hunt HAS said on the 7.30 report that the Government will be looking at $2.4billion in Addition to current levels over the 12 years from 2018 to 2030. So we just got more funding!
Let us not, just at the minute look at the elephant in the room – which would be – “If its going to take $2.4billion to achieve a 5% reduction (the current target and funding) , how will it only take $2.4 billion to achieve the higher target over a longer time period” As I always say about politicans ‘we love youse all’ as we work with what we are so graciously given!
