NT Government: Territory's response to climate change

26 Oct 2023 3:46 PM | Stephanie Berlin (Administrator)

The Territory Labor Government continues to deliver the Northern Territory’s ambitious response to climate change.

Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water Security Lauren Moss has tabled the third annual progress report highlighting significant progress made in our commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

The Territory Labor Government has also committed to reducing its operational greenhouse gas emissions by 47% by 2030 - an unprecedented commitment for the Northern Territory Government, recognising the need to lead by example when it comes to emissions reduction and decarbonisation.

The Climate Change Response: Towards 2030 Annual Progress Report outlines key achievements in the past 12 months aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while pushing towards a 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030.

Key achievements include:

  • Continued progress to increase renewables including the $45 million Darwin-Katherine Battery Energy Storage system, known as the ‘big battery’ with all batteries installed earlier this year

The Climate Change Response recognises the opportunities that will come from emissions reduction and the transition to a low carbon future, while growing the economy in a sustainable way.

Quotes to attribute to Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water Security Lauren Moss:

“Actions over the past three years have laid strong foundations to enable the Territory to progress economic growth, achieve our decarbonisation objectives and provide a platform to build our net zero future.

“Climate change remains one of the greatest global threats and the Territory Labor Government will continue to drive our transition to a low carbon future and harness opportunities to reduce emissions.

“The work certainly doesn’t stop, and I look forward to releasing further strategies for emissions reduction and climate adaptation for public consultation in the coming months.”
