Queensland Govt. Launches Low Emissions Roadmap
The Palaszczuk Government has unveiled the Low Emissions Agriculture Roadmap 2022–2032, which outlines a path for Queensland's agriculture industry to significantly contribute to the state's 2050 net-zero emissions target.
The Low Emissions Agriculture Roadmap 2022–2032 was created through a co-design approach with industry and aims to guide Queensland's agriculture industry towards sustainable, eco-friendly food and fibre production while retaining its global leadership status.
The Palaszczuk Government, in collaboration with industry partners, has identified five focus pathways that will help achieve this goal: livestock emissions, cropping and horticulture emissions, on-farm energy opportunities, carbon farming and landscape management, and regions and supply chains.
The CSIRO report commissioned by the government was instrumental in identifying key themes and actions. For more information, visit https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/news-media/campaigns/low-emissions-roadmap.
Here are some fast facts about the Low Emissions Agriculture Roadmap 2022-2032:
The roadmap aims to support industry-led research to reduce methane emissions from livestock through the development of new stock feeds.
It also supports the development of green fertiliser options with industry-led support.
The roadmap explores opportunities to promote the use of renewable energy on farms.
An industry-led information portal will be developed to educate producers about carbon farming options.
After five years, the roadmap will be reviewed to determine preferred futures and actions.
