Queenslanders, our sunshine state has the tools and talent to become a renewable energy superpower – and shift away from digging and burning fossil fuels that drive climate impacts.

Ramping up climate solutions now will create long-term jobs in our regions, help restore our incredible forests and slash climate pollution this decade. But we need to act now or let the opportunity slip through our fingers.

Sign the petition. We need thousands of us to call on our state government to invest in the solutions and make Queensland a climate and nature champion. Together Queensland CAN!

For more information on how Queensland can slash pollution and create jobs in future industries this decade, see the brand new Queensland CAN! report commissioned by ACF, Queensland Conservation Council and World Wildlife Fund Australia.

Petition demands

We call upon the Queensland Government to:

  1. Slash Queensland’s climate pollution by at least half this decade
  2. Make Queensland a renewable energy superpower and creating 100,000 jobs in climate solutions
  3. Protect Queensland’s nature to store carbon and establishing an Environmental Protection Authority for Queensland to oversee and investigate environmental decisions

Jobs we can create in climate solutions

Let’s get Queensland at the top of the list on climate action and shake things up.
Anthony 2022-09-02 19:06:50 +1000
Queensland has the highest emissions in Australia due to the amount of coal and gas that is being mined. I think we could very well lead action in Queensland because instead of degrading our environment we could be saving it and showcasing the wonderful and unique lands, view, relics, sites and cultures contained within our vast and scenic lands.

I would like Queensland to lead the country with a shift from fossil fuel to focusing on the innovative solutions which will provide employment and give Queenslanders a sense of pride from these decisions.

Because it is essential and we can.
Barry 2022-09-02 18:23:11 +1000
Our state needs to stop approving projects that increase water, soil and air pollution. Stop approving coal and gas projects – Cut our climate pollution by at least half this decade.
Back industries producing renewable energy and using sustainable processes.
Create and subsidise jobs in climate solutions, nature restoration, & sustainable land management.
Give the Environmental Protection Agency power to investigate breaches of the intention of protective laws and prosecute accordingly.

Replanting so many native forests in Qld is so very important, both for the diversity of species of flora and fauna but also to help rebalance what has been lost. Revegetation projects should be our number one focus.
