LEAN is a group of Labor members and supporters that celebrate Labor's environmental legacy and campaign to ensure environment is central to its future.
Our last big campaign in 2015 delivered the Party's commitment to 50% renewable energy by 2030 and the adoption of strong emissions reduction targets.
In September 2016 LEAN successfully lobbied the Federal Parliamentary Party to save the Australian Renewable Energy Agency - ARENA - from the Government's plan to gut it. ARENA funds the development of renewable energy technology and provides grant funding to help get new, cutting edge technologies to market. It is essential to the growth of our renewable energy sector.
Across the states and territories LEAN campaigns on state based issues, ensuring Labor has climate and environment policy to give us a safe future.
WHY LEAN and LABOR?
Labor, as a party of Government, is the political party in Australia that can deliver action on climate change and protection for our natural assets. LEAN’s mission is to ensure Labor leads Australia to a safe and clean future. We can’t do this without you.
Join us today. With hard work and collective action, together we can make Labor the force for environmental change that we, and the planet need it to be.
To be part of the Labor Environment Action Network (LEAN) you do not need to be a member of the Labor party but you cannot be a member of any other political party. We are a network of those working for environmental reform with the Labor party.
