Climate Change Briefs - Queensland Conservation Council

Queensland Climate Policy

What do you think of Queensland’s plans to mitigate climate change?

Last year Queensland saw its warmest year on record - reminding us we must stop our greenhouse gas emissions now to avoid dangerous levels of warming. 

With no meaningful action from our Federal Government, our states need to take the lead in tackling climate change.

QCC believes environment conservation groups have an important role to play in feeding into and improving the Queensland Government's plan to transition our state to zero-net emissions by 2050.

Below are links to short briefing notes on Queensland's climate policy.

This series of short briefing notes is intended to get us all thinking and talking about climate change and what action our Government should be taking to protect the environment and our communities. The briefs focus on issues highlighted through our analysis of Queensland's Climate Transition Strategy.

To ensure environment conservation considerations are included in Strategy 2.0 (set for 2019), QCC is compiling a report based on issues raised by the sector, including gaps or opportunities, to submit to the Department of Environment and Science in July 2018.
