Interim Climate Change Committee reports

The Commission was formed alongside work to set the country’s climate targets in November 2019. The targets were legislated under the Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Act. Before the Act was passed, our predecessor was the Interim Climate Change Committee (ICCC). Formed on 1 May 2018, the Committee’s work was our foundation.  

The Interim Climate Change Committee website has been archived, now that the Climate Change Commission is well established, but it can still be accessed through the National Library Archives.
