Updating the Authority's advice on meeting Australia's Paris Agreement commitments

The Authority's updated advice will seek to provide recommendations that ensure Australia is well-placed to meet its 2030 emissions target and that are consistent with meeting subsequent targets with enhanced ambition that put Australia on a path to net zero emissions, consistent with the Paris Agreement framework.

On 11 July 2019, the Authority released a consultation paper and since then has consulted widely to help inform this advice. We thank those who have taken the time to provide a submission or speak with us. The Authority is currently considering the submissions received with a view to releasing its updated advice in early 2020. This timing will allow the Authority to consider new information expected in late 2019, including updated emissions projections and the outcomes of the twenty-fifth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
