Are you wondering where the major parties stand on the environment?
It’s time to have your say this election!
Our Top End environment faces huge challenges – the unique Territory landscapes, plants, animals and lifestyle that we love are under threat. To protect them we need a government with clear, positive environmental policies.
To help voters with where the major parties stand on environmental issues in the Territory, the Environment Centre NT (ECNT) has developed an environmental policy scorecard. The scorecard has been developed by assessing the major parties’ environmental policies and election commitments against ECNT’s key environmental priorities for the Territory.
For the 2016 NT election ECNT is calling for:
- Real action on climate change
- Ban on fracking
- Action on groundwater management
- Strengthening of the NT environment laws
- Investment in renewable energy
- Increase marine and coastal protection
- Establishment of Independent Commission Against Corruption
See our scorecard to find out how the major parties score on our environment.
Disclaimer ECNT is non-partisan and not affiliated with any political party. ECNT believes that its assessment process has been as objective and accurate as possible, with a view to ensuring the scorecard is simple and easily understood. The environment scorecard reflects public policy announcements to date, current Government activities and past performance, and direct responses to ECNT from the parties.
