HOW WE PLAN TO REMOVE 18 MEGATONNES OF CO2 BY 2030
The Australian government has committed to reduce the nation’s emissions by 26-28 per cent on 2005 levels by 2030.
Our certified sustainable forest industries already contribute significantly to Australia’s carbon abatement efforts, through the carbon stored over time in growing forests and products manufactured from wood. In addition, relative to alternative materials, such as steel, concrete and plastics, wood products require considerably less energy in their production.
As Australia and the world ramp up efforts to drastically reduce emissions, our renewable forest industries can play an even greater role in Australia’s transition to a greener, low-carbon emission economy.
That is why Australia’s forest industries are pledging to remove over 18 megatonnes of CO2-e per year by 2030 – around 23% of the Australian Government’s current emissions reduction target.*
This equates to a huge 115 megatonnes of CO2-e removed or stored over the period 2019 to 2030.
