Australia’s new emission target

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has announced that his administration will introduce 18 pieces of legislation when the new parliament meets this week for the first time since Labor took power in light of the deteriorating economic situation and the significance of addressing climate change.

  • Aiming for discontinuation of new coal and gas projects
