Canberra’s environment groups are working together in 2012 to call for strong leadership and action this year to lay foundations for a Smarter Canberra.
Smarter Buildings: warm in winter, cool in summer
Introduction and passage of energy efficiency savings legislation by 30 June 2012 with support of all parties. This legislation must be ambitious, wide reaching and have scope to be adjusted and improved over time.
All parties commit to the implementation of a framework for zero carbon standards for new buildings by 2016.
Smarter Energy: securing modern energy for Canberra
All parties commit to 100% renewable energy for the ACT by 2020, through a combination of new renewable generation in the ACT and Australian Capital Region, GreenPower purchase, and community ownership options for renewable energy.
Smarter Transport: connecting Canberra
All parties have an election commitment for a fast, reliable, affordable public transport system that connects all of Canberra. Parties will show commitment to this transport transition through $200m towards stage one of a light rail rapid transport line, including identifying the route and the engineering requirements by the election, with stage one completed by 2015.
