Action Resources: Emissions Reduction Targets

Victoria is setting emission reduction targets for 2025 and 2030 right now.

This is the most important decision the Andrews government will make in this term of Parliament. The level of ambition set in these targets will flow down to every decision the government and wider Victorian community makes on climate for the next ten years.

To make sure these targets are consistent with limiting warming to 1.5 degrees, we need to pressure our local representatives to commit to bold climate action, and build power for 1.5 degree targets in our communities.

Here are some resources that will help you achieve these goals in your local community.  

Have you signed up to meet your local MP about climate targets yet?
