The 20th October was an important day for the future of our 40% target. Your vote helped decide if we will commit to 40% emissions reduction by 2020, and how we reach our target.
To give you all the information you needed prior to the election, the Conservation Council ACT Region, Australian Youth Climate Coalition ACT, Climate Action Canberra and Canberra Loves 40% asked all candidates what they will do on climate change. A summary of their responses is available right here.
Unfortunately the Canberra Liberals provided a statement rather than a set of policies to tackle climate change. They outlined no emissions reduction target, or any actions that will reduce emissions. Read our response here.
