Climate change is real and has been caused by carbon emissions from human activity
• Aligned with climate science, Victoria must commit to a 2030 emissions reduction target of at least 74% below 2005 levels with net zero emissions by 2035.
• Investment in new oil, gas or coal is not consistent with limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
• Actively support the development of sustainable energy generation by investing in community infrastructure such as solar panels, batteries, photovoltaic building materials, electric vehicle charging stations, and water tanks on community facilities such as sports pavilions and libraries.
• Address impediments to transition to net zero emissions, such as inability to access street charging for electric vehicles, connecting train stations to new fleets of smaller electric bus services, removal of gas in the home and supporting energy retrofits.
