Climate Action 21 sets the Tasmanian Government’s agenda for action on climate change through to 2021. It reflects the Tasmanian Government's commitment to addressing the critical issue of climate change and articulates how Tasmania will play its role in the global response to climate change.
Tasmania is a genuine leader in responding to climate change. Renewable energy generation accounts for around 90 per cent of our total electricity supply. Tasmania achieved zero net greenhouse gas emissions for the first time in 2016. Tasmania is the first jurisdiction in Australia to do so. This achievement is internationally significant and demonstrates the important role of states and regions in meeting the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to well below two degrees Celsius.
The Tasmanian Government has committed $3 million in new funding to support the delivery of Climate Action 21. This builds on over $400 million already invested by the Tasmanian Government to support action on climate change, including a significant investment in irrigation, infrastructure and the Tasmanian Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme.
Climate Action 21 has been prepared in consultation with local government, industry, non-government organisations, research organisations and the broader Tasmanian community. The Tasmanian Government will continue to work with these groups in our efforts to reduce emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change in a way that supports our economy and provides opportunities for growth.
Climate Action 21 includes a commitment to establish an aspirational long-term target to achieve zero net emissions for Tasmania by 2050, which aligns with the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to well below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The Tasmanian Government proposes to legislate for this target under the Climate Change (State Action) Act 2008.
Climate Action 21 has 37 actions for the following six priority areas:
