Land Use : Agriculture and Forestry

The Zero Carbon Australia Land Use report outlines research showing how greenhouse gas emissions from land use – agriculture and forestry – can be reduced to zero net emissions within 10 years.

This result is within Australia’s capacity in spite of the finding that our agriculture and land use sector is the biggest emitting sector in Australia.

This finding is partly explained by the fact that a number of agricultural industries are among the most emissions intensive activities in the Australian economy.

Australian beef production, for example, is surprisingly even more emissions intensive than the production of Australian aluminium and steel
