Native forest protection is critical for effective climate policy
- The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that strong, rapid and immediate cuts in emissions
are needed to avoid irreversible climate collapse.
- Ending native logging in Australia would reduce total greenhouse gas emissions by 24%.
- 60% of the total biomass of logged trees ends up burnt as onsite waste. Ending native logging would reduce these
- Reducing emissions alone is insufficient. Victoria’s forests are some of the world’s most carbon dense forests and we
depend on their carbon sequestration and storage capabilities.
