Take action on the climate crisis!

NSW is a laggard when we should be a leader on clean energy. Let’s make NSW a clean energy superpower and move beyond coal. Are you in?

Yes, I'm in!

 
 

Our climate is changing. We just suffered record heat waves, our rivers are drying up and the bushfire season is longer, hotter and drier than ever. Communities and wildlife are feeling the impacts of the climate emergency. The time for delay and excuses is long gone, we need to get on with building the solutions.

Here’s what needs to happen

Switching to clean energy is cheaper, cleaner and more reliable. The NSW government can take our state from laggard to leader on clean energy with the following policies:

  • Provide solar power to 400,000 households (including rentals);
  • Tender for 4000MW of large-scale clean power;
  • Power all government operations with 100% renewable energy; and
  • Legislate for net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, and ensure all government decisions consider the impact on climate change.

Are you in?

Join us in calling on political leaders to face up to the climate emergency and take action.
