Setting Achievable Emissions Targets for Australia

May 2007

The Business Council of Australia has proposed a three-tiered system of greenhouse gas emissions targets to make sure action to respond to climate change is credible and achievable while maintaining Australia’s competitive advantage.

The proposal for long-term, intermediate and ‘gateway’ targets has been developed by the BCA to provide a framework for determining effective and credible targets for the Australian economy.

The proposal, Setting Achievable Emissions Targets for Australia, provides further detail on the multifaceted approach to emissions reduction outlined in April in the BCA’s climate change policy, Strategic Framework for Emissions Reduction.
