The subject of climate change has largely been untouched by the two major parties so far this federal election campaign, with Labor leader Anthony Albanese mentioning it at his press conference on Saturday.

Labor is pledging a 43 per cent cut in emissions by 2030 as it aims for net-zero by 2050, with the coalition hoping for but not committing to a 30 per cent cut in emissions by 2030 based on no change in policy. The government has also made a net-zero 2050 pledge.

It's a hot button issue for the government as a swathe of independents run in blue-ribbon seats campaigning on more action on climate.

Scientists have warned neither party's 2030 targets go far enough and a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warning desperately calling for nations to do more to prevent warning below 2C.

Australia has been dubbed a "holdout" by UN secretary general António Guterres for its failure to take stronger action.
