Australias low pollution future: the economics of climate change mitigation
This report uses economic models to analyse the macroeconomic, sectoral and household impacts of Australia reducing its greenhouse gas emissions under different targets and trajectories. Because responding to climate change is a global challenge, this report evaluates the impacts on Australia in the context of global action to reduce emissions. This report also describes possible economic, environmental and technological pathways that Australia and the world could take to reach their objectives. Given the long timeframes involved in climate change mitigation policy, this analysis extends to 2050 and, in some scenarios, to 2100.
