Our Purpose

The Climate Change Authority’s purpose is to provide evidence-based advice on the response to climate change, in order to:

  • Accelerate emissions reductions and help Australia play its role in the global effort to limit temperature increases.
  • Enhance Australia’s prosperity and resilience as the climate changes and the world transitions to net zero emissions.

We strive to deliver on our purpose and functions by:

  • Conducting and publishing robust and transparent reviews and research, taking an holistic and strategic approach.
  • Taking account of diverse perspectives by engaging with a wide range of contributors.
  • Partnering and collaborating with others, in the public and private sectors.
  • Meeting our statutory obligations, including by completing statutory and special reviews on time.
