Climate Action 21 sets the Tasmanian Government’s agenda for action on climate change through to 2021. It reflects the Tasmanian Government's commitment to addressing the critical issue of climate change and articulates how Tasmania will play its role in the global response to climate change.

Climate Action 21 is structured into six priorities. Each priority area includes a 2021 vision statement, our actions for 2017 to 2021 and details of initiatives already being progressed by the Tasmanian Government. Climate Action 21 has 37 actions.

The Climate Action 21 sets Tasmania on a pathway to reach a target of zero net emissions by 2050. The 2050 Tasmania’s emissions target means that the region’s emissions will be balanced out by our carbon sinks.
