Anthony Albanese, Australia’s newly elected Prime Minister, pledged to reduce carbon emissions by 43% by 2030 and to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
Albanese remarked during the Quadrilateral summit, “We will act in awareness of the fact that climate change poses the greatest economic and security threat to Pacific island states. My government will establish a new goal of cutting emissions by 43% by 2030, putting us on track to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.”
He stated that his administration is dedicated to combating climate change and strengthening the Indo-Pacific region’s economic, cyber, energy, health, and environmental security.
“My government is committed to collaborating with you. The new Australian administration prioritizes combating climate change and strengthening the Indo-Pacific region’s economic, cyber, energy, health, and environmental security “he stated.
Albanese stated that the Quad leaders are united in their desire for a free and open Indo-Pacific. Because the Quad alliance is needed to set an example for the area, his administration will stand with the other three countries.
After being sworn in as Australia’s 31st Prime Minister, Labor Party leader Anthony Albanese is attending the Quad summit for the first time.
