Government leadership on net zero

The Centre for Policy Development has produced a briefing note setting out key elements of net zero leadership for government.

The Government Leadership on Net Zero briefing note by Dr Mara Hammerle and Toby Phillips. It sets out three key dimensions of net zero leadership for government.

They are:

  • Ambition: a leading net zero program has a challenging timeline and scale of action. It includes scope 3 emissions alongside scope 1 and 2 emissions.
  • Innovation: leadership requires true change to internal systems, eg. internal carbon pricing.
  • Honesty: leadership¬† means clear and consistent reporting on aspects such as progress against clear emissions benchmarks, but also setbacks or unexpected difficulties.
