We are former Australian diplomats, and foreign, trade and development policy officers who are concerned about the effects of climate change on future generations and future life on this planet. 

We call on the Australian government to make climate action a central focus of Australia's foreign, trade and development policies. 

Our mandate calls for Australia take an international leadership role in meeting the global challenge of climate change. Our policy highlights the nexus between foreign and domestic policy: strong domestic climate policies will increase our influence in international fora and enhance our ability to achieve Australia’s foreign, trade and investment, political and security objectives.

We call on the Government to:

Accelerate the transition to low- or zero-carbon energy use in all parts of the economy

Support nature-based greenhouse gas abatement

Join global efforts to limit emissions of other greenhouse gases, including methane and nitrous oxide

Support our development partners to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and decarbonise their economies

Ensure all of our foreign, trade and development policies are consistent with Paris Agreement goals

Embed greenhouse gas emissions reductions into Australia’s representative offices and programs both in Australia and overseas.
