Tracking 2 Degrees

Quarterly we publish the Tracking 2 Degrees Report, which tracks Australia’s performance against our Paris Agreement Target and the Climate Change Authorities carbon budget, based on the latest available data.

REPORTS

Tracking 2 Degrees Report Series

Under the Paris Agreement, the Australian Government has legally committed to reducing our emissions by 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2030. However, to ensure global warming remains under 2 degrees, independent body – the Climate Change Authority (CCA) – has proposed Australia set a national Science Based Target (SBT). This is a target calculated from Australia’s share of emissions for a 2◦C global outcome. Ndevr Environmental has used this target to model a quarterly emissions budget for Australia. These reports track Australia’s performance against our Paris target and the CCA’s carbon budget based on the latest available data, trends and industry movements.

FY 2021 Q4 REPORT

– Australia’s total emissions for FY2021, excluding land use, are projected to be the lowest on record since 2005. This is the first full financial year cycle under Covid-19 effects.– Emissions for Q4/FY2021 are projected to be 126.8 Mt CO2-e, this is an increase of 4.46 Mt CO2-e on the previous quarter and an increase of 1.9 Mt CO2-e on the same quarter the year prior (Q4/FY2020).– Continuous expansion of renewables is driving FY2021 annual electricity emissions to be the lowest on record (160.9 Mt CO2-e). This is 6.2% below FY2020 and 10.2% less than FY2019 annual emissions (pre-Covid 19 levels).– For Q4/FY2021, Australia’s emissions are 1.8 Mt CO2-e higher than the trajectory to meet Paris targets and 14.5 Mt CO2-e higher than recommended safe Science Based Targets (SBTs).– We expect emissions to continue to rise as COVID 19 state-wide lockdowns cease. Based on our projections and the underlying policy framework, we see no evidence suggesting the Australian Government’s recently announced 35% reduction projections by 2030 are achievable.
