I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes the following resolutions of the G7 on 13 June 2021, that the group 'acknowledges their duty to safeguard the planet for future generations' by:

(i) more than halving their collective emissions from 2005 levels by 2030,

(ii) ending fossil fuel subsidies by 2025,

(iii) ending direct financial support to thermal coal generators by the end of this year,

(iv) achieving an overwhelmingly decarbonised power system in the 2030s, and

(v) increasing and improving climate finance for the developing world by 2025; and

(b) calls on the Australian Government to implement these commitments in Australia.
