Net Zero Plan Stage 1: 2020-2030

The Net Zero Plan Stage 1: 2020-2030 is the foundation for NSW’s action on climate change and goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. It outlines the NSW Government’s plan to protect our future by growing the economy, creating jobs and reducing emissions over the next decade.

The plan aims to strengthen the prosperity and quality of life of the people of New South Wales, while helping to achieve the State’s objective to deliver a 50% cut in emissions by 2030 compared to 2005 levels. The plan will support a range of initiatives targeting energy, electric vehicles, hydrogen, primary industries, technology, built environment, carbon financing and organic waste.

The implementation of the Net Zero Plan, together with the Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap, will result in more than 9000 jobs and up to $37 billion in private investment, the majority expected to be across regional New South Wales.
