Dec 02, 2015 - 1:00pm

How Australia would compare with other developed countries in 2030 under the government’s and the ALP’s carbon pollution reduction targets is explored in this Factsheet.

The analysis of Australia's targets against other countries found Australia would be in the following positions in 2030:

  • Under government targets: Australia would have the highest emissions intensity of any developed economy and significantly high per capita pollution - of the G20 nations, only Saudi Arabia would be comparable.

  • Under ALP targets: Australia would not have the highest emissions intensity and per capita pollution would be close to others, such as the US.
