Low Carbon Growth Planfor Australia
March 2010
 
Preface
ClimateWorks Australia (ClimateWorks) was founded in 2009 through a partnership betweenThe Mer Foundaon and Monash Universit, with a mission to substanall reduce Australia’sgreenhouse gas emissions over the net ve ears. ClimateWorks believes the praccal stepsrequired to achieve these reducons are more likel to be undertaken if presented in an eas tounderstand, overarching and cohesive climate change strateg for Australia.This strateg has been built on the following principles:1. Establish a comprehensive fact base2. Eamine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reducon opportunies from mulpleperspecves (including societal and investor or business)3. Idenf the lowest cost means to reduce GHG emissions4. Understand the range of barriers to GHG emissions reducon5. Build momentum for collaborave acon based on a solid understanding of theopportunies, the economics and the barriersThis report provides the basis of a living framework that reects these principles and canincorporate new ndings and improved analsis on how to reduce GHG emissions at lowestcost as new data becomes available. It is not a detailed plan for each emissions reduconopportunit or the nal word on emissions reducon potenal and costs. Similarl it is notintended as an assessment of climate science or of the impact of GHG emissions on globaltemperatures. However, it is the basis from which to launch well considered and balancedacons to achieve GHG emissions reducon at lowest cost.While this report is focused on idenfing and eplaining the opportunies that business andthe communit have to reduce GHG emissions, it is not meant to discount the etra cost thatreducing emissions will have on some businesses and individuals. However there are man wasto reduce emissions that save costs. The intent is to highlight the praccal opportunies forbusiness to enable more Australian winners.The net step for ClimateWorks is to work with both business and eperts to unlock theopportunies idened in this plan. ClimateWorks hopes to help business, governmentand consumers idenf the lowest cost emissions reducon opportunies, thebarriers to implementaon and how to overcome them.ClimateWorks hopes readers nd this a useful contribuon to meeng theclimate change challenge Australia faces.
