Expert Panel To Advise On 2035 Emissions Reduction Target

Source: Victorian Government.

The Andrews Labor Government is taking the next step in meeting its 2050 target of net zero emissions by seeking independent expert advice on an interim emissions reduction target for 2035.

Minister for Energy, the Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio today announced the Interim Targets Independent Expert Panel – which will provide advice on recommended interim targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions between 2031 and 2035.

Strong action on climate change is crucial to the state’s future, with thousands of jobs already created thanks to the Labor Government’s action and investment in clean energy, zero-emissions transport and the circular economy.

Victoria was one of the first jurisdictions in the world to legislate its emission targets and is the only Australian jurisdiction with a legislated requirement to set new interim targets each 5 years.
