Climate Change

Climate change is the biggest threat to Australians and to our country's reefs, rivers, water and wildlife.

At EJA we are working to

  • Cut climate pollution by stopping the expansion of fossil fuel extraction and coal-fired power generation
  • Encourage accountable corporate behaviour by making sure companies acknowledge that climate risks are financial risks
  • Support the expansion of renewable energy in Australia
  • Explore legal options to fill the vacuum on emission reduction laws in Australia

Fossil Fuel Extraction

To avoid climate catastrophe, Australia urgently needs to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

A healthy future for our environment depends on a rapid transition to renewable energy.

Climate Change Mitigation

Our governments need to take responsibility for reducing our emissions. A key part of this is passing the right climate laws.
