Greens leader Adam Bandt has revealed his party will support Labor's climate change bill, meaning it will almost certainly pass parliament.
The government's bill enshrines an emissions reduction target of 43 per cent by 2030 and net zero by 2050, and will require the minister of the day to report annually to parliament on the nation's progress.
Negotiations between Mr Bandt and Climate Change Minister Chris Bowen have been ongoing after the Greens voiced concerns about the bill.
The Greens wanted faster action on climate change, calling for a 2030 emissions reduction target of 75 per cent during the election campaign.
