NICOLE Lawder says that if elected the Canberra Liberals will continue with the current legislated targets of 100 percent renewable energy for the ACT by 2020 and achieving zero net emissions by 2050.

“The Canberra Liberals are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and encouraging the use and advancement of renewable energy. It’s important to lead the way here in the ACT,” Nicole said.

“We are also committed to the interim target of 40 percent less than 1990 levels of carbon emissions.

“We recognise that renewable energy is an important part of our transition to a low emissions economy and the Canberra Liberals are committed to protecting our environment for future generations.

“Continuing with these targets means we’ll make further progress towards a cleaner and more sustainable environment in the future,” Ms Lawder concluded.
