The Canberra Liberals have a strong commitment to the environment. It was a Liberal Government that introduced the ACT’s first Minister for the Environment in the early 1990’s. It was a local Liberal Government in 1997 that introduced the first greenhouse gas reduction targets for any jurisdiction is Australia. Recently in the Assembly I spoke about the need for a single nature conservation agency, and about reducing greenhouse emissions.
The Canberra Liberals also have a strong commitment to reducing waste going to our landfills, to recycling, and to working on our waterways to improve water quality and amenity. We support good management of our nature parks, reserves, and the natural environment. Our beautiful natural environment creates many opportunities for preservation, conservation and tourism.
We are working in this space to develop policies to take to the next election however, in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact my office in relation to your environmental queries.
