Over 370 Branches support LEAN's call for continued Labor leadership on climate action

Over 370 local ALP branches and other party entities supported LEAN's call for strong climate policy by passing the following motion during the first six months of 2015:

This branch calls upon the Australian Labor Party to lead the nation on climate action. It calls on the Australian Labor Party to adopt in its platform:

  • An energy policy that delivers 50% of our electricity from renewable sources by 2030. And the creation of one ministry of Climate Change and Energy to deliver coherent policy with two aims – affordable and clean energy.
  • Reducing Australia’s carbon pollution by 50% on 2000 levels by 2030.
  • A commitment to put climate action at the heart of its program to deliver jobs, innovation and investment to build a prosperous, safe and fair Australia.

This branch calls on our Federal Electoral Council/Assembly to pass this motion in support of our branch’s concern and bind its conference delegate to support this motion at National Conference.

The list of local branches that supported LEAN's campaign is a testament to the breadth and depth of Labor's continued deep roots in communities across Australia. From Balranald to Geraldton, Burnie to Townsville, Mt Druitt to St Kilda Labor people joined LEAN in calling the Parliamentary Party and the National Conference to support strong climate action.
