Morrison pledges tech investment ahead of Biden's climate summit
US President Joe Biden expected to announce 50 per cent cut to emissions by 2030.
The Morrison government has pledged another $565.8 million towards cleaner technologies on the eve of a virtual climate summit at which Australia is expected to come under pressure.
US President Joe Biden is reportedly set to announce a more ambitious target to cut his country's emissions at least in half by 2030, after UK Primer Minister Boris Johnson pledged a 78 per cent cut by 2034.
Australia's current target is 26 to 28 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, but Prime Minister Scott Morrison has so far refused to put a timeframe on the nation's "road to net-zero", which many other countries have committed to by 2050.
