Banks and super funds must move our money from funding polluting coal, gas and nuclear projects to clean renewable powered industries and jobs.
Political parties must stop accepting dirty donations and giving public funding to coal and gas companies and ban big political donations to reduce their influence on decision making
Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland have laws to cap big donations to political parties.
Most recently, Queensland passed some of the strongest political finance laws in the nation, modelling what legislation at the federal level could look like. Donations are capped over the four year electoral period at $4,000 per political party and $6,000 to candidates of the same party from a single donor.
Coal and gas companies have been some of the biggest spenders in Queensland politics. Caps on donations mean that harmful industries can no longer gain extraordinary access to politicians through fundraising dinners and other ‘cash for access’ events, and politicians no longer are beholden to their biggest donors.
