NSW Climate Change Policy Framework

The NSW Government is committed to effective action on climate change.

The NSW Climate Change Policy Framework (PDF 2.4MB) outlines our long-term objectives to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 and to make New South Wales more resilient to a changing climate.

This policy framework builds on our strong track record of expanding clean energy, helping households and businesses reduce their bills by saving energy and preparing for the impacts of climate change.

It guides the NSW Government's policy and programs.

Environmental future funding package

In November and December 2016, the NSW Government consulted on 2 draft plans that will help implement the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework. They are:

  • Climate Change Fund Draft Strategic Plan
  • A Draft Plan to Save NSW Energy and Money.

More information on these 2 plans is available on the

Environmental future funding package site.
