Prime Minister Scott Morrison says any net-zero targets in the nation will be “set by Australians”, as the country faces criticism globally for its current climate position.

Mr Morrison’s comments come as the UK High Commissioner to Australia, Vicki Treadell, urged the government to adopt more ambitious 2030 targets ahead of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.

“The targets will be set by Australians, the Australian cabinet, for Australian needs, and we’ll make our Australian way,” Mr Morrison said.

“I don’t propose to make any suggestions as to what other countries should be doing.”
