Climate change is one of the most serious issues facing us. It’s a challenge that can only be met through coordinated action at a global, national and local level.
Labor has strong decisive policies to tackle climate change and protect our incredible environments. It is our promise to all Australians:
- 50 per cent renewables by 2030
- 45 per cent cut in emissions by 2030
- Net zero emissions by 2050.
We will deliver a pro renewables, affordable and reliable energy system that also commits to a “just transition” for communities affected by the massive changes that have to occur.
I also want our community to think locally about how we can improve our environment. During the byelection campaign we announced that, if elected, a Labor government would commit up to $1 million in funding to restore urban rivers and corridors in Merri Creek, Darebin Creek and the catchment area but there is more work to do.
What other small and large changes can we implement in our community to improve recycling, the health of our parks and creeks and to reduce waste?
Write, call or request an appointment to let me know your ideas!
I have arranged for Mark Butler, Shadow Minister for Climate Change and Energy to come to Batman to discuss the climate change and energy policy.
