Fiona Simpson, chairman of the National Federation of Farmers, states that farmers need certainty regarding their net zero emissions target.
“Like any other business community, this has been an absolute bubbling issue for years,” Ms. Simpson told Sky News Australia.
“This was a political hot potato … all sectors are moving towards their goal, the Net Zero goal. We are doing it independently.
“But letting the government confirm that goal, confirming the value of the farmers, the value of agriculture, the goal of acknowledging the fact that farmers and agriculture are just starting to work and there is much to offer in the future, that is me. That’s what we need now. “
