Climate Change Bill 2022

legislation type Legislative
Mitigation Framework
Passed in 2022
Australia's framework climate mitigation document sets out greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets by 2030 and by 2050. 

The Act provides for annual climate change statements, requiring the Minister to prepare such statements; and cause copies of those statements to be tabled in each House of the Parliament.

The document further confers advisory functions on the Climate Change Authority which is independent, on the creation of NDC targets and on the preparation of annual climate change statements.

The operation of this Act should be periodically reviewed.
