Tasmania's climate change legislation

Tasmania’s Climate Change Legislation

The Climate Change (State Action) Act 2008 (the Act) sets the Tasmanian Government’s legislative framework for action on climate change. The Act states that the legislation must be independently reviewed every four years. The latest independent review was delivered by Jacobs Group (Australia). Read more about the review and the Tasmanian Government’s response.

Draft Bill to amend the Act

The Tasmanian Government released a draft Bill to amend the Act in response to the recommendations of the latest independent review of the Act.

Consultation on the draft Bill closed on 14 November 2021. Thank you to everyone who made a submission.
