Key messages

Our federal, state and territory work together and develop some policies that will lead to emissions reductions that will support the achievement of climate targets including a plan for Australia to transition off gas.
Australia stops approving any new coal or gas projects in line with the IPCC recommendation and looks for better alternatives.
Governments maintain a close watch on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) effectiveness as it is yet unproven.
