The Australian Government believes that acting on climate change is essential.

The Government is implementing a comprehensive strategy for tackling climate change in Australia. The strategy is built on three pillars: reducing Australia’s carbon pollution; adapting to unavoidable climate change; and helping to shape a global solution.

This White Paper sets out the Government’s policy in relation to two major elements of its mitigation strategy: a medium term target range for national emissions, and the final design of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. These elements are placed in the context of Australia’s efforts to help shape a global solution, and a range of supporting and complementary climate change initiatives.
