The federal government and Labor don't appear overly concerned about the watering down of one key element of the United Nations' final agreement on climate change at the Glasgow COP26 summit.
However, the Greens called it a "cop out" on coal.
The talks ended on Sunday AEDT with a global agreement that aims to keep hopes of capping warming at 1.5C to prevent catastrophic climate change.
But there was a last-minute change to the wording of the UN agreement around coal at the insistence of India.
Instead, a clause was amended to accelerate "efforts to phase down unabated coal power and phase out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies", weakening what had been "efforts to phase out".
Even so, cabinet minister and former environmental minister Greg Hunt believes the summit has made important progress for the world.
"We welcome the outcome at Glasgow. It's important progress for the world. It's important protection for Australia," Mr Hunt, a former environment minister, told the ABC's Insiders on Sunday.
Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese said he was comfortable with the wording.
"What needs to happen is a transition. I'm comfortable with the world working together," he told reporters in Sydney.
"The difference is Australia needs to be a part of working constructively, rather than as we are at this conference, where we've worked with Saudi Arabia, with Mexico and Brazil, as one of the few industrialised countries that refuse to change the 2030 target."
But Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young, who has been in Glasgow, said the last-minute watering down of the already watery "Glasgow Pact" was very disappointing.
"This conference should have ended coal's future, instead all that could be managed is a phase down,," she said.
Greenpeace Australia Pacific CEO David Ritter also felt the final text of the agreement was far from perfect, but the message to Australia and other fossil fuel producers is clear.
"The momentum is in the right direction," Mr Ritter said.
"The task ahead is relentless pressure on the fossil fuel corporations and reckless governments such as Australia's."
Australia has set out a net zero emissions by 2050 target. It also set a 2030 target of minus 26 to 28 per cent emissions but with a projection of minus 35 per cent.
The UN agreement also calls on all countries to return the negotiation table next year to set stronger 2030 targets.
Repeatedly asked whether Australia would be updating this target, Mr Hunt said: "We've set our target. But what we'll continue to do is update our projections."
"We're doing it without higher electricity prices and higher petrol prices."
Ai Group chief executive Innes Willox said Australia's national adoption of a goal of net zero emissions by 2050 is positive.
"But our core 2030 commitment remains as it was in 2015," he said.
"We will need to update it before COP27 in Egypt to ensure we are in the main stream of advanced economies."
