As we develop Tasmania’s new climate change action plan, there are two key areas to consider: reducing Tasmania’s greenhouse gas emissions and helping Tasmania adapt to a changing climate. Key questions for each of these areas are provided below. Background information on each of the areas is provided in the following pages to help guide your feedback.
Tasmania has a strong record on greenhouse gas emissions reduction. We are 100 per cent self-sufficient in renewable energy and we have met our target of net zero emissions by 2050 four years in a row. It is important that this momentum continues to ensure Tasmania consistently achieves and maintains its low emissions status, and leads Australia in the transition to a low-emissions economy.

This preparation includes considering both the risks and opportunities of a changing climate, to build resilience to those changes.
Mitigation is action to reduce emissions that contribute to climate change, such as:
Adaptation is action to manage the risks of climate change impacts, such as:
