The Australian Greens launched a discussion paper on Tuesday to outline how Tasmania could be a global leader in negating climate change over the next decade.
Tasmanian Greens senator Nick McKim said the state was uniquely positioned to lead on the issue due to its wild and clean environment and power generation largely reliant on renewal energy.
He said the paper outlined key policies and initiatives to reduce carbon emissions and put Tasmania ahead of the pack in fighting climate change.
Discussion paper author Ben Parr said the policies contained within it would be consulted upon over 12 months with the community, climate scientists, farmers and other landholders.
He said the report outlined the environmental, economic, social and reputational interests as to why Tasmania should be positioned as a global leader against climate change.
The second part of the paper outlined why a price on carbon pollution should be investigation, directions towards 100 per cent renewables in electricity generation and transport, and restoration of land and sea ecosystems, Dr Parr said.
He said the paper also looked at whether the implementation of a state-based carbon tax was possible.
Former Australian Greens leader Christine Milne said the report was critical in driving grassroots action on climate change.
"I'm sick of waiting for the rest of the world to get on with it," she said.
