Farmers need ‘certainty’ over net zero emissions plan

0 0

The National Farmers’ Federation President Fiona Simpson says farmers need certainty regarding the target for net zero emissions.

“Like the rest of the business community, this has been an issue that has been bubbling along absolutely now for years,” Ms Simpson told Sky News Australia.

“It’s been a political hot potato … all the sectors now are moving towards a target, a net-zero target, we’re doing that independently.

“But to have government confirm that target, and to confirm a target that recognises the value of farmers, the value of agriculture, the fact that farmers and agriculture are just getting on and doing the job, and have so much to offer in the future, that’s what we need now.”
