National Mitigation Plan submission July 2015

admin News, Policies, Submissions

The Environmental Pillar welcomes the opportunity to input into the draft National Mitigation Plan and looks forward to further input as the plan evolves. The Environmental Pillar strongly welcomes and supports the Ministers commitment to transition to a low carbon future.

We anticipate that this will be implemented in a clear, directional robust national mitigation plan. The Environmental Pillar highlights the importance of incorporating this plan into all other, existing and upcoming, national strategies, policies and plans.

It is not a stand alone policy but one that must underpin all others and cross all Government Departments. The Environmental Pillar notes that all mitigation actions in the transition agenda are cost effective given that there are no jobs on a dead planet.
