Queensland Resources Council CEO Ian Macfarlane has questioned whether a target of 2050 for the state to become carbon neutral is achievable. He says the target is "very ambitious" given that the state boasts high-intensity industries such as LNG and alumina production. He has urged the State Government to take into account the cost of the push for carbon neutrality. Macfarlane and the Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association’s Rhys Turner have both called for a national approach to reducing carbon emissions.
