Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

NET ZERO EMISSIONS — PREMIER'S COMMENTS

1380. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

I refer to the Premier's comments on WAtoday on Tuesday, in which he stated that the environmental movement has endorsed the government's aspiration of net zero emissions by 2050.

(1) Which individuals or organisations from the environmental movement endorsed the final aspiration?

(2) Which individuals or organisations from the environmental movement did not endorse the final aspiration?

(3) Given that the Conservation Council of Western Australia's response to the aspiration called for the McGowan government to ''urgently set out an emissions reduction pathway for the state, which must be put into legislation'', has the Premier taken steps to implement this part of the CCWA's supposed endorsement?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(3) I refer the honourable member to the media release by the Conservation Council of Western Australia in which Piers Verstegen said, ''We welcome this target''.
