Climate Change Mitigation

The ACT is a global leader on climate change action. We have some of the most ambitious emissions reduction targets in the world, and are on track to be powered by 100% renewable electricity from 2020.

The ACT Climate Change Strategy 2019–2025 outlines the next steps the community, business and Government will take to reduce emissions.

In May 2019, we joined many other cities, states and territories around the world in declaring a state of climate emergency, acknowledging the need for urgent action across all levels of Government. Learn more about the emergency declaration.

We are also supporting the transition to zero emissions vehicles to reduce emissions and create more sustainable transport options in Canberra.
