Australia has set out a plan to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, but it does not include radical policy shifts. In the medium term, the government now expects the country's emissions to fall 30%-35% by 2030, measured against 2005 levels. That exceeds its previous target of a 26%-28% reduction in that time frame. The plan seeks to strike a balance between achieving carbon neutrality by midcentury while protecting industries such as coal mining, oil and gas, and agriculture, which are all major carbon emitters.
