The Front-Runners In The Race To Net-Zero!
How does NSW’s target stack up against other states and territories? Every jurisdiction in Australia has committed to a net-zero target by 2050 — but let's look at their 2030 targets.
There’s one state that’s way ahead of the pack, can you guess which it is? That’s right, it’s Tasmania! Amazingly, Tassie has already achieved net-zero emissions and 100% renewable energy, with plans to hit 200% renewable electricity by 2040.
The ACT is working towards a 65% cut to emissions by 2030 and net-zero by 2045, and SA is already more than 50% of the way to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. VIC has established a 45-50% target by 2030, and QLD has committed to just 30%. At the back of the pack is WA with a 26-28% target, and then NT, who doesn’t have an interim target.
