About the Climate Council

Climate Council is Australia’s own independent, evidence-based organisation on climate science, impacts and solutions.

Our Vision, mission and values

Our vision is that by 2025 Australia’s emissions are on a steep downward trajectory with projects and policies in place to see us cut emissions by 75% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2035. This represents a transformation in action and attitude from all levels of government, industry, business and community. This will fundamentally improve Australia’s contribution to the global climate challenge, while unlocking many national benefits from the new economy, and protecting Australian lives, our well-being and natural environment.

Our mission is to be a courageous catalyst propelling Australia towards bold, effective action to have emissions plummet during the 2020s and hit net zero by 2035.
