C4CE Submission to Climate Change Bill 2020

By 30/11/2020December 22nd, 2020No Comments

Independent Zali Steggall has championed a set of Climate Change Bills which have now been referred to the committee for Environment and Energy.  The Climate Bills create a legal framework which will make Australia’s approach to tackling climate change much more systematic. You can read the main Bill here. It creates an independent Climate Change Commisson, establishes a net zero emissions target for 2050 and provides guiding principles for decision makers – amongst other things.

good summary of the Bill can be found at Zali Steggal’s website. The second Bill revokes the existing Climate Change Authority and makes amendments to a range of related Acts.

The Coalition for Community Energy made a submission highlighting the benefits of community energy and that a systematic approach to climate change, like the approach established by the Bills, is necessary.
