Australia aims to be carbon zero by 2050
The Australian Parliament has approved a climate change bill that aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 43% and achieve carbon zero by 2050.
This was reported on the official website of the country’s Prime Minister E. Albanese.
The message also cites the words of the Minister for Climate Change and the Energy Crisis, K. Bowen.
He said the new law would give “certainty to investors and energy market participants and help stabilize the energy system” in Australia.
The law also “increases transparency and accountability” through the publication of annual reports on climate change.
In addition, public discussion is guaranteed when government decisions are made.
Local environmentalists welcomed the new law, but criticized the government for opening new gas and coal projects in the country at the same time.
