We Can Build Renewable Energy that Benefits Biodiversity

We urgently need to build more solar, wind and storage to bring down emissions and protect our precious biodiversity from climate change. But unfortunately, our current inadequate planning frameworks allow clean energy projects to be approved in environmentally sensitive areas – which is bad news for climate and nature.

Strong climate action means both protecting nature and repowering our polluting energy system. That’s why we urgently need updated national and state-wide planning frameworks that stop development in the places we need to protect. We can and must have a renewable energy industry that's rolled out to benefit nature.

Take action and call for better planning laws in Queensland by emailing the Deputy Premier and Minister for Planning Steven Miles, Minister of Energy and Public Works Mick de Brenni, and Minister for the Environment Leanne Linard.
