The Federal government had the opportunity to ensure Australia’s economic recovery tackled the climate crisis...
But the budget that Treasurer Josh Frydenberg delivered on Tuesday 6 October failed to seize the opportunity.
Again, the responsibility to create jobs, catalyse new industries, and decarbonise our economy falls on the shoulders of states and territories.
It’s now up to Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas to forge a smarter path towards economic recovery—one that creates jobs while cutting emissions.
We welcome the news that Victoria will build Australia's biggest battery—an initiative that will create 85 jobs, accelerate the rollout of renewables, and help cut emissions. Let's build on the momentum.
We need the Andrews government to plan for the jobs-rich offshore wind industry, invest in critical Public Transport infrastructure like Melb Metro 2, and set the direction of our economic recovery with science-based Emissions Reduction Targets.
TAKE ACTION: Email Treasurer Tim Pallas today to call for the upcoming budget to support a clean, renewables-led recovery for Victoria.
