The Government Say Yes to a New Era

WWF Australia is delighted to announce that the Government has passed through Senate and into law the Clean Energy Future Bills. With climate change effecting the whole world, now is the time to act, before it’s too late.

The new climate legislation for Australia means –

  • A targeted 80% reduction in carbon pollution
  • The biggest polluters will have to pay for their output
  • An independent commission will help the government in the future

This great news is going to work really well, not just for the environment, but also the Australian economy. With 30 other countries taking part, as well as all EU members, putting a price on carbon pollution should see big businesses look more towards cleaner energy.

Thanks to this important first step, the Australian people can be proud that their government is planning for the future. Though there is still lots of work to be done, maybe one day we will see the target being 100% renewable energy in Australia. But for today let’s celebrate this landmark decision and look towards a cleaner, and brighter future.
