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.

Net Zero Plan

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. Find out more about the Net Zero Plan and how NSW is taking action on climate change.
