Submission: Setting Victoria’s 2035 climate target

Projection of carbon emissions reduction pathway for 1.5C, net zero by 2035.

What should Victoria’s 2035 emissions reduction target be? We strongly believe it should be science based taking into account our carbon budget with global equity considerations. The Victorian Government called for submissions by June 5, 2022. Our submissions concentrated on Transport, as we see that is a major policy blind spot with regard to public transport, active transport and aviation.

  • Victoria’s target for 2020 was to cut emissions by 15-20% below 2005 levels. That target was achieved two years early.
  • Victoria’s target for 2025 is to cut emissions by 28-33% below 2005 levels.
  • Victoria’s target for 2030 is to cut emissions by 45-50% below 2005 levels.

Read our submission for 2025 and 2030 targets in which we argued for at minimum the emissions cuts identified by the Combet review matching the science: of at least 43% by 2025 and 67% by 2030 to have any chance of limiting warming to 1. 5°C. (Download PDF version)

The next short-term target, for 2035, must be set by 31 March 2023. An independent panel of experts will advise on a target for 2035, the best action to reach that target and what the pathways to net zero emissions by 2050 could look like. The Panel will prepare a report with their advice to government by 1 March 2023.
