Australia can do more on climate: Britain

Britain wants Australia to commit more on tackling climate change, a spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says, stepping up the pressure before the United Nations COP26 climate summit next week.

The spokesman said Australia had come forward with commitments on reaching net-zero carbon emissions but Britain believes it could do more.

"We do believe Australia can do more on areas such as coal and we will continue to have those discussions," the spokesman told reporters.
