CLIMATE CHANGE

Working to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 7, 12 and 13

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.

Oceans have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished and sea level has risen.

Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) have increased by almost 50 percent since 1990

Emissions grew more quickly between 2000 and 2010 than in each of the three previous decades

Partnering with WWF we are working to encourage carbon farming. This helps to restore, rehabilitate and reforest areas across Australia that deliver important carbon sequestration and biodiversity benefits.

Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential. Focusing on universal access to clean and renewable energy, increased energy efficiency is crucial to creating more sustainable and inclusive communities and resilience to environmental issues like climate change.

At the current time, there are approximately 3 billion people who lack access to clean-cooking solutions and are exposed to dangerous levels of air pollution. Additionally, slightly less than 1 billion people are functioning without electricity and 50% of them are found in Sub-Saharan Africa alone.

Energy is the dominant contributor to climate change, accounting for around 60 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions.

The food sector accounts for around 30 percent of the world’s total energy consumption and accounts for around 22 percent of total Greenhouse Gas emissions.

Indoor air pollution from using combustible fuels for household energy caused 4.3 million deaths in 2012, with women and girls accounting for 6 out of every 10 of these.
