Dirty Dozen Polluters: Pull your weight on climate

Australia is now facing a climate crisis. The last eight years have been the hottest on record. And in that time, communities have been hit hard by climate-fuelled bushfires, extreme weather, and floods. 

Communities have been doing a heavy lift when it comes to tackling the climate crisis.

Now we’re asking the Dirty Dozen companies to pull their weight.

The Albanese Government was elected with a mandate to reform and strengthen Australia’s ‘Climate Safeguard Mechanism’ to deliver deep emissions cuts from large industrial polluters this decade. 


We are therefore asking the large fossil fuel industrial polluters to publicly commit to:

- Support at least a 43 percent reduction in total emissions (from 2005 levels) from facilities covered under the Climate Safeguard Mechanism by 2030.

- Deliver real reductions in climate emissions and rule out the unfettered use of ‘offsets’.

- Seek no special deals for new coal, oil, and gas projects or for so-called ‘Emissions-Intensive & Trade-Exposed’ industries.

 

Failure of major fossil fuel companies to do their fair share in meeting Australia’s 2030 target will put more of the burden onto community members and other sectors of the economy, such as transport, farming, and small to medium businesses.

Failure would leave our communities exposed to intensifying climate impacts.
