The Greens have essentially backed in all our policy priorities as their own commitments. That includes strong land clearing law reform and carbon farming (although effectively $200 million less than Labor) policies, very strong climate and renewables policy, a clear position on the Adani mine, and endorsement of QCC's other conservation priorities.
QCC would have liked to have seen the Greens far more actively and publicly campaigning on the land clearing issue in the lead up t and during the election, and we are surprised they have not referenced their actual policy in their response to us about land clearing. Strengthening community awareness and promotion of policy demonstrate practical commitments.
Nevertheless, the Greens' conservation and climate commitments ahead of the 2017 state election represent a very strong environmental policy stand.
