Goal

Transition pathways for a low emissions resource industry and agriculture

The Towards Net Zero mission in development aims to create new growth industries and jobs for Australia and ensure the ongoing global competitiveness of Australian resources, agriculture and regional communities.

Opportunity

A net zero emission Australia

Australian businesses together with state and local governments are setting net zero emissions goals and the Australian Government has confirmed it is seeking to get to net zero preferably by 2050.

We know it will be essential to develop new technology to help these meet these goals be met and it will be equally important to address barriers to deployment of that technology.

However Australian businesses need the practical tools to remain globally competitive as an increasing number of trading partners and international supply chains decarbonise.

Achieving these this goals requires not just development of new technology but demonstration of technology at scale to drive wider adoption.

Developing and demonstrating effective, high abatement potential technology with industry partners will equip Australia to reduce its emissions while capitalising on our many natural advantages to export technology, low carbon products, carbon offsets and help our trading partners to reduce global emissions.

Potential impact

Sustainable agriculture, energy and resources

To make sure technology solutions meet the needs of Australian producers and communities, we are establishing the Net Zero Emissions mission which will work with partners to establish net zero emissions regional exemplars within Australia. New transformative technologies can be demonstrated in action to drive the adoption and cost reductions needed to support the sustainable growth of Australian businesses and communities.

Proposed focus

Creating a transition plan towards net zero

We will provide Australian industry, agriculture and regional communities with the tools to achieve net zero emissions and realise the opportunities of a low carbon economy. The developing mission will focus on four areas to enable Net Zero Emissions goals of industry, governments and communities around Australia:

  • Science-based frameworks for achieving Net Zero Emissions
  • Standardised assessment techniques including digital carbon monitoring systems
  • New high-abatement potential technologies for industry and agriculture
  • Growth, high value jobs and transition pathways

Collaborations

Success depends on strong collaboration across industry, research and governments.
