Showcasing innovative australian approaches to carbon emissions reduction

We’re thinking globally, acting locally.

Inaction will be costly and deadly.

Climate Action Australia is committed to helping cut Australia’s carbon emissions to reduce climate change — for the safety and wellbeing of future generations and of all life on Earth.

We act on, and share, trustworthy evidence, and helpful resources.

Our mission

Educate

We are a trusted source of accurate information on climate change and on the reduction of Australia’s carbon emissions through funding and adoption of innovative technologies.

Showcase

We showcase innovative Australian and international technologies that reduce carbon emissions.

Act

We move quickly and effectively to reduce carbon emissions at home, at work, in our local communities and nationally.

Why Australia needs climate action now

0 %
of climate scientists agree human-made climate change is happening

The debate is done

Multiple reports document irrefutable proof of climate change, further supported by increasingly erratic and extreme weather events around the globe. We must reduce emissions — further debate or denial only creates potentially life-threatening delays.

Australia's hottest year on record

Earth’s recent years have been the hottest years ever recorded.

Time is running out

We are rapidly running out of time to minimise further climate change impacts. Some scientists believe that climate tipping points may be fast-approaching and could topple like dominoes, leading to severe consequences for all life on Earth.

until Australia reaches its 2030 Paris Agreement emissions target, given the current rate of emission reduction (and this doesn't include any additional emissions)

We must hit the targets

Australians (and many others) are not cutting emissions quickly enough. We must take personal and professional action, now.

Our shameful global ranking

Australia has the eleventh highest emissions per capita in the world.

We have the power

Australia is a leader in many clean technologies, such as solar power and building renewable energy. We can rapidly reduce our carbon footprint by fostering such innovations and encouraging other countries to do the same.

The year coal-generated electricity must be phased out by OECD countries

To avoid catastrophic impacts, including the total destruction of the Great Barrier Reef.

The cost of inaction is too great

We are already witnessing the impacts of global warming — worsening bush fire seasons, and more frequent coral bleaching, droughts and storms. As we lose lives and livelihoods, natural resources, biodiversity and beauty, we are eroding our children’s hopes for a safe, healthy and happy future.

How can you make a difference?

Join our concerned group of pragmatic people by reducing your carbon emissions, increasing your knowledge of climate change, and supporting the development of technologies to move Australia to a low carbon economy.

Our planet and children need you!
