Reducing our emissions and contributing to the critical goals of the Paris Agreement will safeguard Western Australia’s environment, community, and long-term prosperity.

The State Government is developing sectoral emissions reduction strategies in consultation with business, industry research institutions and the community to transition our economy to net zero emissions.

The sectoral emissions reductions strategies will:

  • provide robust and credible emissions reduction pathways for Western Australia with tangible actions for reducing emissions consistent with the government’s target of net zero emissions by 2050.
  • recognise the importance of significant action this decade to reduce emissions, transition emissions-intensive industries and protect Western Australia’s economy from carbon transition risks.

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation is leading the development of the strategies during 2022 and 2023 in collaboration with key State Government agencies, including the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Department of Treasury, Energy Policy WA, Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, Department of Transport, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, and Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage.

Collaboration and partnership with industry will underpin the success of the strategies.
