Australian emission reductions can be projected over time.

The following graph illustrates an emission reduction profile to meet a zero carbon emissions target by 2050.

Emission targets are specified as carbon dioxide equivalent tonnes per person (C02e t/person) which are a per-capita measure.

The following table shows the actual emission reduction and their percentages.
