Australia has a strong track record of participating in global emissions reduction agreements and meeting and beating our emissions reduction targets while maintaining economic and population growth. Since the coalition government came to office, Australia's economy has grown by more than $200 million and more than one million jobs have been created. The coalition government's approach to addressing climate change is ensuring that we maintain energy security and affordability, as well as the competitiveness of our industries.
