How 76,000 new jobs for Australians can help rebuild our economy now and tackle climate change.

Australia is facing twin crises. After last summer’s climate change-fuelled bushfires, many communities are still doing it tough. And hundreds of thousands of Australians are out of work due to COVID-19.

We need to be creating jobs now, and solving long-term problems.

Economic recovery is top of mind for Australians. Governments have a crucial role to play in making targeted investments, and implementing policies that can put Australians back to work. In doing so governments can choose to invest in initiatives that set us up for the future, creating win/win solutions that create jobs and tackle long-term problems at the same time.

This Clean Jobs Plan provides a whole-of-economy solution. It identifies 12 major policy opportunities to immediately kick-start economic growth. Collectively, these opportunities represent 76,000 jobs. Job creation would start immediately and over a three-year period.

Crucially, these opportunities are shovel ready, deliberately targeted to regions and occupations hit hardest by job losses, and have the potential to grow the entire economy in the long term.

These are jobs for the many Australians who need to get back to work now.

The analysis does not identify every job that can be created. Instead, it focuses on targeting regions and occupations hit hardest by job losses and on programs that can create jobs quickly.
