Legislation on Climate Change Introduced into NSW Parliament

The Private Member’s Climate Change Bill 2016 (NSW) was introduced into the Legislative Assembly last week. The Bill seeks to

  • Set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emission
  • Facilitate government development of programs and policies to address climate change and established targets
  • Establish transparency of information about climate change and public access to information
  • Encourage local government, private business and community action on climate change

The Bill establishes the NSW greenhouse gas emissions target of achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 30 June 2040. Currently the Environment for Living section of the State Plan, has established a target to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 60% by 2050. The Bill also establishes the NSW Climate Change Commission as an independent body to advise, consult and educate stakeholders.
