Queensland Labor Delivering for the Environment

At time of writing Annastacia Palaszczuk and the Labor Party are set to form Government in Queensland. LEAN campaigned hard across the state for Labor candidates.  LEAN is thrilled that such a strong environment policy was on offer including an end to tree clearing, 50% renewable energy by 2030 and blocking of public funds to the Adani mine.  LEAN is particularly proud of its role in delivering the commitment to 1 GW of publicly owned renewable energy. 

LEAN believes we need to reconsider the entire design of the Australian electricity market as the competition-based, marketised system is failing us in so many ways.
