Agriculture industry can’t hide from net-zero targets: Environment Minister
Environment Minister Sussan Ley says the agriculture industry needs to be involved in any discussions about net-zero targets.

Nationals MPs aren’t convinced sectors like agriculture, manufacturing and mining should be included in any target.
Ms Ley told Deborah Knight the agriculture industry “needs to be at the table for the discussion”.
“When the rest of the world buys our products … they need to know that they have been produced in a way that is acceptable, is sustainable.”
