The Australian Government has announced a goal of virtually zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

In Australia, where exports of energy resources such as coal support the economy, there has been a deep-rooted cautious opinion on climate change countermeasures, and while delays in setting goals have been pointed out, there is an aim to avoid pressure from the international community.

Australian Prime Minister Morrison met in Canberra on the 26th and announced a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to virtually zero by 2050.



According to this, by 2030, we will invest about 1.7 trillion yen in Japanese yen to promote the development of technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to reduce the cost of hydrogen and solar power generation, the greenhouse effect. It is said to accelerate the spread of energy that does not emit gas.



"Not only will we reduce emissions, but we will also create jobs, raise incomes and protect the lives of our people," Morrison said, emphasizing the economic benefits of climate change measures.



Australia, where exports of energy resources such as coal support the economy, has been cautious about climate change countermeasures, and while Japan and Western countries have set targets to reduce emissions to virtually zero by 2050, delays in setting targets have been delayed. It was pointed out.



Prime Minister Morrison is scheduled to attend COP26 starting at the end of this month, with the aim of avoiding pressure from the international community by coordinating with other countries on climate change measures.
