Government needs a ‘roadmap’ to achieve net zero

Shadow Minister for Early Childhood Education Amanda Rishworth says the federal government needs a “roadmap” revealing how which it will achieve net zero emissions.

“We have endorsed net zero by 2050 and we’ve been very clear that we will have a roadmap to get there, I think that’s what’s missing with the government,” Ms Rishworth told Sky News Australia.

“They have no target; they have no target for net zero by 2050.”

She said “the government’s talking about technological breakthroughs” and “there is technology out there that could solve this problem now”, but this requires a framework.

“We will be outlining our roadmap to get to net zero by 2050, you have to be able to achieve it and we’ve been very clear we’ll do that with the way we’re going to do it."
