Working to build a UK-Australia climate partnership

As the world marches towards an ambitious goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, the UK has set its sights on leading the charge.

We've cut emissions faster than any other G7 country and attracted billions of investment into renewable energy, which now account for 40% of our electricity.

The UK's £600 billion investment in the Green Industrial Revolutionopens in a new tab means more opportunities for collaboration, partnership and investment in areas like offshore wind, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage (CCS).

We're also taking a leading role in international climate negotiations. Our shared climate goals, ambition and expertise create momentum for stronger partnerships as we transition to a clean energy future.

An investor-friendly market

The UK Government champions clean growth and provides extensive support to the private sector to unlock investment and green innovation in every region.

This investment means UK businesses are more innovative and accessible than ever before – a major private capital investment growth opportunity.

Our new UK-Australia Free Trade Agreement makes it even easier for trade and investment between our countries, with zero tariffs, easier business travel and reduced red tape.

Offshore wind opportunities

Offshore wind is a great example of how the UK Government works with private sector investors to nurture and develop renewable energy technologies that deliver world-leading capabilities and transformational change.

Together, the UK and Australia can usher in a new era of renewables that will reduce the cost of going green and expedite a low carbon economy.
