Panel discussion: Journey to net zero: are we there yet?

Australia's commitment to a net zero emission reduction targets align with international and domestic commitments. This journey is not just about meeting policy objectives but pivotal to achieving global climate neutrality by 2050. As the industry adapts to an energy shift – moving away from fossil fuels – the notion of a 'just transition' poses several critical inquiries:

  • What are the implications for failing to decarbonise?
  • Is there any way to offset the expense of investing in clean energy sources and emissions mitigation technology?
  • What is the political backdrop and are we likely to see changes in legislative framework with changes in government?
  • Where is the low-hanging fruit… What steps can we take now to get some quick wins?
  • How do we obtain the resources and talent to support a transition to low emissions and what are the options for deploying them?
