Energy transition

To effectively tackle climate change, Australia needs to stop supporting the extraction and burning of fossil fuels. It also needs to be part of the unstoppable renewable energy boom.

Environmental Justice Australia helps facilitate the transition to 100% renewable energy by encouraging the development of strong clean energy laws. We developed a model Safe Climate Transition Act that demonstrates how a state government in Australia could lead the way and urgently transition its economy.
