Climate Action Hobart meeting
Sustainable Living Tasmania, 1st Floor, 71 Murray St, Hobart.
The ACT Government has just released what is easily Australia’s most detailed and most ambitious climate change action plan: http://www.environment.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/254947/AP2...
The Plan sets out in some detail how the ACT expects to reach 40% reduction in greenhouse emissions target by 2020, and 100% reduction (zero net emissions) by 2060, and this despite the fact that emissions in the ACT have risen significantly since 1990.
Climate Action Hobart’s Phil Harrington was involved over a 2-year period in the detailed analysis that supported the development of this plan: see http://www.environment.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/237892/Fin...
On Tuesday 16 October, at 5.30pm at Sustainable Living Tasmania, Phil will make a special presentation on the ACT’s plan, setting out how these ambitious targets can be met…with net financial savings to householders and residents of the ACT.
With Tasmania’s Climate Action Plan failing to set targets, timetables or to quantify the expected impact of measures – and with the Plan due for review before the end of the year – it’s timely to look at good practice elsewhere, and to discuss what Tasmania can learn from the ACT’s experience. All welcome.
