Under the Paris Agreement the Australian Government has legally committed to reducing our emissions by 26-28% by 2030. However, to ensure global warming remains under 2 degrees, independent body the Climate Change Authority (CCA), has proposed Australia set a national science based target (SBT). This is a target calculated from Australia’s share of emissions for a 2◦ global outcome. Ndevr Environmental has used this target to model a quarterly emissions budget for Australia.
This report tracks Australia’s performance against the CCA’s carbon budget based on the latest available data, trends and industry movements for the months of April, May and June 2017.
