Event Details

We are pleased to invite you to the launch of the ClimateWorks Australia Low Carbon Growth Plan (LCGP), a fact-based action plan for ensuring Australia can build a growing low-carbon economy.

ClimateWorks Australia is a non-profit partnership between the Monash Sustainability Institute and the Myer Foundation.  It aims to be a trusted, credible and neutral organization that contributes to practical action to tackle climate change.

Pic of reportThe LCGP will lay out the emissions reductions opportunities available to 2020 across all major sectors of the economy using technologies that are known today, and present a sequenced set of short, medium and longer term strategies for abating greenhouse gases (GHG) in Australia. The LCGP has been supported by international management consultants, McKinsey & Company who have worldwide expertise in assessing emissions reductions opportunities and their economic costs and benefits. The McKinsey Australian Greenhouse Gas Abatement Cost Curve has been updated as part of this LCGP.


The LCGP builds from the updated Australian cost curve, translates it to the investor perspective, and analyses the most effective actions required to overcome barriers specific to each sector and harness the identified emissions reductions opportunities. 
Our aim is to show business sectors, individual businesses and the community the practical action that can be taken to deliver significant greenhouse abatement at an affordable cost.


To request a briefing or to find out more ClimateWorks & the LCGP please continue to our website or contact Chrissie at info@climateworksaustralia or +61 3 9902 0741.  An electronic version of the report is currently available on our website.
