Released 26/11/2018

Recruitment for four new members of the ACT Climate Change Council is now underway, Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability Shane Rattenbury said today.

“The ACT Climate Change Council provides expert advice to the Government on climate change, and the ACT’s ambitious program to make the Territory resilient to the effects of climate change and to reduce our emissions to net zero by 2045,” Minister Rattenbury said today.

“We are seeking applications from people with expertise in climate change adaptation and mitigation, and insights into what we can do to address and adapt to climate change and help maintain the ACT’s position as a world-leader in climate policy.

“We are open to applicants from across the ACT community, business and industry.

“The Committee would benefit from members with expertise in climate change science, such as academics. We are also keen to have members with experience implementing actions to achieve zero emissions, be it climate wise building design and construction or zero emissions transport, and who have strong social analysis skills.”

The Council has up to nine members and includes people with a broad range of skills and knowledge relating to addressing or adapting to climate change.

Applicants should represent one or more of the following categories: climate change science; environmental management; energy efficiency and renewable energy; business; people who are socially or financially disadvantaged; building sector; social analysis; and the transport sector.
