Our impact

Momentum is building.

In December 2015 and for the first time in history, the world agreed to legally binding limits to global temperature rise with the Paris Agreement. It came into force in November 2016 - faster than any international accord before it.

Since Paris, several Australian state governments, two of the big four banks, along with government departments and peak bodies in the buildings and transport sectors have all approached ClimateWorks Australia - a trusted adviser - calling on our expertise: They know we understand the net zero emissions by 2050 ask, and can identify pathways to get there.

ClimateWorks is proud to share our latest impact report, titled 'Building Momentum'. It covers many of our key achievements over the 2016-2017 financial year, which contributed to forward momentum towards our 'net zero emissions by 2050' future. As the report shows, ClimateWorks continues to deliver impact both through collaborative projects and our own initiatives.

But commitments are just the beginning - we have an ongoing and vital role to play as trusted advisers and catalysts, helping businesses, governments, industry and investors to finish the task. Going forward, Australia must step up if we are to position ourselves for a prosperous, low carbon future and play our part in addressing climate change.
