Under the Victorian Climate Change Act (2017) the Victorian government must determine emissions reduction targets for 2025 and 2030. An independent Expert Panel was appointed to advise the Victorian Government on the first two interim targets for 2021-2025 and 2026-2030 and the opportunities to reduce emissions across the Victorian economy.

This seminar will preview results for a forthcoming report from researchers at the Climate and Energy College on the emissions abatement opportunities and potential in Victoria. This new analysis includes modeling of emissions reductions that are consistent with a 1.5°C trajectory on a sectoral level. This analysis also includes an estimate of the job opportunities, costs and economic benefits to Victoria.

The Hon. Lily D'Ambrosio, Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change is scheduled to provide an introduction to the event.
