Climate Change (National Framework for Adaptation and Mitigation) Bill 2020

Climate Change (National Framework for Adaptation and Mitigation) Bill 2020

Climate change is a serious threat to Tasmania’s economy, environment, natural advantages and lifestyle. That threat will only grow with inaction and will drive social inequality into the future.

TasCOSS supports the need for national legislation with a long-term plan and long-term goals of net zero emissions reduction before 2050. This Bill is a positive, significant step forward. We encourage the Committee to strengthen this Bill to better protect people who are financially or socially disadvantaged and urge the Parliament to work together on agreeing, improving and adopting this legislation.
