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, Queensland’s planning frameworks don’t currently protect our precious and threatened species, including State Code 23 for wind farms.

Planning Minister, Meaghan Scanlon, has been sitting on an update to strengthen State Code 23 since December. Updating State Code 23 is the first step we need in building renewable energy well in Queensland to protect nature and our climate. 

Ask Minister Scanlon to release the revised State Code 23 by July and get on with the broader planning reviews needed to build renewable energy in a way that benefits nature and communities.
