Why it’s important

Our states and territories need to take a lead role in tackling our greenhouse gas emissions and avoiding dangerous climate change. If we want to protect our State’s vulnerable species and ecosystems and build an economy that has a role in future zero net emissions markets, we need stronger policies to guide effective action.

The Qld Government’s Climate Transition Strategy is a good starting point to help us reach zero net emissions by 2050, but missed opportunities and challenges remain. For more information, see QCC’s briefing papers here.

We believe the conservation, NRM, industry and community sectors have an important role to play in feeding into and improving our Government’s climate policies.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the day,



Please note: This Forum has been organised as part of QCC’s Climate Project with funding from the Queensland Department of Environment and Science Community Sustainability Action Grant Program.
