WA Government Emissions Reduction Policy 

28 August 2019

Today’s State Government announcement aligns with Federal Government policy and Australia’s international treaty commitments, and commits Western Australia to an integrated, orderly, phased transition to a low carbon economy.

“Mining companies are already working toward this objective and are actively taking steps to reduce their environmental impact, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and incorporate renewable energy technologies in their operations,” said Mr Pearce. 

AMEC supports Government policy that appropriately reflects the importance of the mining industry and recognises Western Australia’s dependence on the jobs and revenues generated by the various sectors of the resources industry.

AMEC will be consulting with our member companies on today’s policy announcement.
