Building on principles in our Net Zero Position Statement, ATSE is undertaking an ongoing program of work: Technology Towards Net Zero. This series of webinars, explainers, and primers aims to demystify applied science concepts and innovative technologies that will help Australia on a technology-led transition to net zero emissions.
Net Zero Emissions refers to the accounting balance between a country’s greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere and any ‘negative emissions’ – through natural or technological solutions – that remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
Energy Forum: Net Zero Emissions Position Statement
Achieving net zero emissions is critical to Australia must commit to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest, and set a more ambitious interim emissions target for 2030. To achieve more ambitious targets, Australia should prioritise the immediate deployment of existing mature, low-carbon technologies which can make deep cuts to high-emitting sectors before 2030 and develop a net zero emissions policy and implementation framework.
Carbon Neutral Agriculture: Webinar Series
Agriculture, as a major greenhouse gas emitter, faces significant challenges in meeting net zero emissions targets. None-the-less, Australian agricultural industries are enthusiastically embracing the challenge – using technology to improve sustainable farming and reduce their emissions. In 2021, the Agriculture and Food Forum presented a Carbon Neutral Agriculture webinar series to explore the challenges and opportunities for Australian agriculture and food.
