NET ZERO EMISSIONS —
22. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Minister for Environment:
I refer to the state government's
aspiration of net zero emissions by 2050.
Has any analysis been done on —
(a) a net zero transition for Western
(b) Western Australia's
emission projections; and
(c) marginal abatement cost curves?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
development of the state climate policy includes consideration of measures to
lay the foundations for Western Australia's transition to net zero
emissions by 2050. It is anticipated that the state climate policy will outline
a range of actions, including analysis of opportunities for cost-effective
greenhouse gas abatement across the economy.
