AGL’s submission to consultation on the Climate Change Authority’s 2024 Issues Paper – Targets, Pathways and Progress

AGL strongly supports Australia’s commitment to the Paris Agreement to ensure the increase in global average temperature is held to well below 2 degrees and importantly to pursue all efforts to limit temperature increase to 1.5 degrees.

Consistent with this, AGL continues to support Australia setting ambitious economy wide emissions reductions targets consistent with delivering Australia’s share of national contributions to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, or as close as can be practically and economically delivered.

Accordingly, AGL is very supportive of the CCA’s work, including in its Issues Paper and elsewhere, which supports the sectoral emissions plans and sets out the Authority’s initial considerations in making recommendations to the government on 2035 emissions reductions targets that are ambitious and achievable.
