Decarbonisation Futures: Solutions, actions and benchmarks for a net zero emissions Australia (Webinar)

Cameron Butler is a Senior Analyst at ClimateWorks Australia. Since joining in 2017, Cameron has conducted research and analysis for numerous projects in ClimateWorks’ Pathways and Investments program, particularly related to long term emissions reduction scenarios.

ClimateWorks Australia has recently released its seminal report, Decarbonisation Futures: solutions, actions and benchmarks for a net zero emissions Australia, prepared in partnership with CSIRO. This work builds on ClimateWorks’ 2014 Pathways to Deep Decarbonisation report, developed with ANU and CSIRO, which outlined a path to net zero emissions by 2050. Global progress in the past five years has closed the technological gap, making zero emissions possible in all sectors. As a result, Australia still has an opportunity to forge a path in keeping with the Paris Climate Agreement goal. Decarbonisation Futures models scenarios limiting global temperature rise for both 1.5 degrees and 2 degrees, providing a guide for Australian government and business decision-makers on priority technologies, deployment pathways and benchmarks for achieving net zero emissions.

In this seminar, Cameron Butler will discuss how the accelerated development and deployment of technologies across each sector of the economy – electricity, buildings, transport, industry, agriculture and land – can help Australia meet the challenges of the transformational decade for climate.
