A framework to achieve a low emissions Queensland agriculture sector.


The roadmap will assist Queensland agribusinesses and the broader supply chain to lower their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions without impacting the supply of food and fibre.

Different industries in the agriculture sector are at different stages of developing and implementing GHG emissions reduction targets.

This roadmap seeks to support industries in the agriculture sector to set and deliver against their targets and work towards the Queensland Government’s commitment of a zero emissions economy by 2050.

We have partnered with key industry partners AgForce and Queensland Farmers' Federation to develop this roadmap, which will evolve as the needs and ambitions of our partners change. This process will ensure the roadmap remains current and relevant to the sector.


The Queensland agribusiness sector is a world leader in low-carbon production and supply chains.


The Queensland Government is committed to:

  • 30% reduction on 2005 GHG emissions by 2030
  • powering Queensland with 50% renewable energy by 2030, 70% by 2032 and 80% by 2035
  • zero net emissions by 2050.

The roadmap builds on this commitment by outlining:

  • technologies and policies needed to facilitate a measured and continued decline in production-based GHG emissions
  • practices producers can adopt to manage their GHG emissions and position their business to capitalise on low emissions technologies.


Actions to meet the vision are grouped under these 5 pathways:

Working together

The roadmap has been co-designed to enable a coordinated sector-wide partnership approach to achieve carbon reductions in agriculture.

The roadmap builds on and supports the current commitment by producers and industry, and connects to other government strategies.
