The Net Zero report provides a snapshot of Greater Sydney's current greenhouse gas emissions and projected pathways in reducing emissions to net zero by 2050. This report was commissioned mid-2021 and was developed with assistance from a cross-agency reference group, which included representatives from Department of Planning and Environment, Transport for NSW, Infrastructure NSW, Treasury, as well as Resilient Sydney.

Key findings included that Greater Sydney is on track to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2030, in line with the NSW-wide target. Read the Net Zero Report (1.63MB, PDF) to explore the findings and understand how it will inform the Commission's environmental sustainability work.
