TAKE2 is the Victorian Government’s collective climate change action initiative. It supports Victorian individuals, business, government, educational and community organisations to take meaningful action to reduce climate change. In June 2016, the State Government committed to fight climate change, setting an ambitious target for Victoria to reach net zero emissions by 2050. This target has been enshrined in legislation. The State Government will reduce emissions from the operations of government departments by 30 per cent below 2015 levels by 2020.
TAKE2 is also encouraging and supporting all Victorian individuals and organisations to voluntarily commit to tackling climate change. The goal is to help keep the temperature rise under two degrees.
